To eliminate modern slavery, illegal child labor, and deforestation prevalent in the cocoa industry, the B Corp developed five rules for responsibly sourced cocoa: pay a higher price, use 100% traceable beans, encourage strong farmers, promote better quality and productivity, and go for the long term with five-year plans and agreements. Its holiday offerings include this minty dark chocolate bar with a fir-tree-shaped section.
