VISTA, CALIF. — Dr. Bronner’s, a maker of organic soap and personal care products, is introducing a new line of organic, fair trade and vegan chocolate.
The company’s Magic All-One Chocolate bars are made with 70% dark chocolate and feature chunky bites and smooth, decadent fillings. Available in salted dark, roasted whole hazelnut, crunchy hazelnut butter, salted whole almond, salted almond butter and smooth coconut praline varieties, the products are sweetened with lower-glycemic coconut sugar.
The new chocolate bars are a result of the company’s work to partner with farmers to improve the health and productivity of existing palm and cocoa trees in Ghana through dynamic agroforestry, a farming practice that involves planting complementary trees and other plants near the cocoa crop. Dynamic agroforestry has been shown to create biodiversity and improve yield and income streams for farmers, according to the company.
“Our recipe is simple: perfectly balanced delicious ingredients sourced from fairly paid farmers implementing regenerative organic practices, that fulfill chocolate’s promise as an expression of love, elevating it to be the pure and ethical indulgence it is meant to be,” said Michael Bronner, president of Dr. Bronner’s.
Dr. Bronner’s Magic All-One Chocolate will roll out at grocery stores nationwide this summer and will be available for a suggested retail price of $5.49 per 3-oz bar.
