Rococo Chocolates and World Land Trust

photoNow you can enjoy your delicious chocolate and know that you have contributed to a great cause at the same time.

Rococo Chocolates are happy to be supporting World Land Trust during their 25th anniversary by donating a minimum of 25p from all their Organic Dark chocolate 65% cocoa bars sold during the period to this important charity.

This dark chocolate forms the basis for all the dark chocolate Rococo Artisan Bar recipes and is made with fine flavoured cocoas and also contains beans from Rococo’s farm in Grenada. Smooth and toasty.

World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity, which protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats acre by acre. Since its foundation in 1989, WLT has funded partner organisations around the world to create reserves, and give permanent protection to habitats and wildlife.

Eco Friendly, Sturdy and Ever So Good Looking – the Rococo Bag

IMG_0107wIMG_0106w

 

                                                                     As always Rococo Chocolates are thinking of the environment, their customers and, of course, style -this new heavy canvas bag (actually a 75/25 jute-cotton mix) fulfil all these criteria. It is handsome, can be used again and again (and not just for chocolate) and will cut the use of paper and plastic bags.

It is a great size (it even will hold Rococo’s biggest hamper) and the rounded handles means there is no cutting into your hands when carrying a heavy load. The off- white canvas features the much loved Rococo moulds used on much of their packaging.  The two sides of the bags are different one featuring a cocoa pod.

The bag is sold at the four Rococo shops and online for £7.50 and is free when you spend more than £75.00.

Building Bridges in Grenada

The cocoa farmers from the Grococo farm in northern Grenada have for years been jumping over slippery rocks to get to the harvest. Now they have a bridge!

One of the very last things that the late Mott Green did before he died was to have the metal frame of the bridge craned into place. He died the next day (June 1st) in a tragic electrical accident.

James, Chantal and their children Fergus and Millie were in Grenada for his Memorial in June and saw the bridge in its half-finished state and vowed to finish the project in short order. It had been Mott’s vision to build the bridge to help the farmers get the heavy sacks of wet cocoa off the Grococo Farm without having to jump over the slippery rocks on the river. This vision has now been achieved, and Rococo continues to invest in the cocoa farmers of Grenada.

Grenada2007cocoa-80James and Chantal, as partners (with Mott’s mother Judith Friedman) and investors on the farm have dedicated the entire Rococo Marketing budget for 2013 to this project, and made sure that the vision became a reality.

It is wonderful to see the finished bridge in all its glory and on November 14th the official opening will take place at Hermitage, Grenada.
