FREE CHOCOLATE: WE DO NOT TRANSFER

  • 1. Traceability

    We have direct contact with the farmers who supply our cocoa. We travel to Mexico, Ecuador and other countries where we review the quality, processes and good harvest and fermentation practices.

  • 2. Fair Trade

    For every kilo of Fair Trade certified chocolate we use, approx. $100 CLP is returned and delivered directly to the communities of cocoa farmers who participated in said production.

  • 3. We do not accept the work of minors

    In an industry where child labor remains widespread and normalized, Le Vice and the plantation owners who have signed the letter prohibit child labor.

  • 4. We do not use CCN-51

    In our quest to produce the finest chocolate with unparalleled flavor, we strive to preserve biodiversity.

    Therefore, we do not use cocoa beans from the "hyper-productive" and genetically modified CCN-51 cocoa tree.

Traceability: Primary requirement

Unfortunately, the journey of cocoa from when it is grown to when it is consumed in the form of chocolate is full of exploitation, corruption and violence in the world. It is our commitment not to be part of this unsustainable value chain full of injustice, therefore we have taken traceability as one of the fundamental pillars of our supply chain. Traceability means that at Le Vice we can know who has harvested the cocoa beans used for the production of the chocolate we use as raw material and, most importantly, under what conditions they have done so. Unfortunately, most of the cocoa in the world has no traceability, and may even have been grown by children who work as slaves for bread and water. Traceability is the basis for creating a fair and sustainable system, as it improves the conditions of its farmers and at the same time guarantees the quality of the beans to produce better chocolate.

Fair Trade

A second look at sustainable chocolate is fair trade, where we share with farmers the value of superior quality chocolate. For every kilo of Fair Trade certified chocolate we use, approx. 100 CLP are returned and delivered directly to the communities of cocoa farmers who participated in said production. Today we have managed to overcome the barrier of 50% Fair Trade chocolate, this means that for every kilo of chocolate you buy at LE VICE, on average farmers will receive €0.05 in compensation, which will allow them to live longer lives. worthy and fair.

Sustainability is generating value for everyone, from the cocoa farmer to the chocolate consumer

Transverse value

By being part of a sustainability program, farmers receive better living conditions and education, which allows them to grow cocoa with better knowledge and ultimately obtain better raw material for the production of chocolate with fine aroma cocoa. We see sustainability as a functioning requirement; if we do not address this issue today, we will not only be contributing to a market of violence and injustice, but we will also put the supply of cocoa and its quality at risk in the long term.

Do you dare to try 100% sustainable cocoa?
