We’re Beyond Good: both in name and practice. And we’re redefining quality and sustainability standards in the chocolate industry. The typical chocolate supply chain usually has anywhere from 3-5 middlemen sitting between the cocoa farmer and the chocolate maker. That doesn’t work for farmers and it doesn’t work for us. So we put our money where our mouth is. We built a factory in Madagascar. And we built it as close as possible to our cocoa farmers. Making chocolate where the cocoa grows is our burning desire in life.
We recently launched our new line of three bars made with Ugandan cocoa, the beginning of another direct supply chain: https://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2020/01/16/1971713/0/en/Beyond-Good-Sweetens-its-Offering-with-Three-New-Chocolate-Bars.html
