One of the main certification audits of organic is regarding the water and irrigation of the cocoa trees. The cocoa beans we use in the 100% chocolate comes from trees grown in a valley. The water after a rain runs down the forest valley slopes to the trees. Because of the valley slopes and rainforest thickness along with access to the top of the mountains we can't prove the water source that runs down to the cocoa trees and therefore we can't certify the cocoa beans as organic in our 100% unsweetened rainforest dark chocolate.
We are working on a certified organic 100% unsweetened chocolate that comes from cocoa beans grown on trees in a flat area in the rainforest where we can prove the water source for each tree.
