Dedicated to finding ways to serve chocolate with love, Seattle Chocolate Company is continuing to better its sourcing and production practices. On top of the newly released Valentine's Day products, Seattle Chocolate Company has begun sourcing Rainforest Alliance Certified (RAC) chocolate. As one of the most robust and comprehensive certification organizations, the Rain Forest Alliance is one of the few organizations committed to full traceability for every bean back to its farm of origin. RAC ensures chocolate comes from sources using sustainable agricultural techniques, farms free of child slave labor and co-ops that pay their farmers and workers a fair, market appropriate rate for their labor and product. As early as April 2014, Seattle Chocolates core line of truffle bars will bear the RAC logo.
