Going Beyond the Bar

This year, we're inspired by the variety of chocolate confections we've seen made with specialty cacao.

Utilizing cacao in a variety of pastry and ready-to-serve drink applications can act as a key driver for success in our industry. The best way to improve our farmers livelihoods at origin is to buy their beans. Finding unique ways to incorporate the beans as nibs, chips or however you like helps end consumers connect with our sources in new and exciting ways.

Beyond the bar thinking promotes long term relationships with farmers, offering stability to their cacao production through new uses for cacao and increasing volumes in seasonal planning. By purchasing their beans year after year & creating more chocolate confections, we can foster success, longevity, and partnership across the cacao supply chain.
