Kopali Organic Fair Trade Chocolates

Kopali Organics Dark Chocolate Banana, 2-Ounce Pouches (Pack of 6)
  • Perfectly balanced single-origin rich dark chocolate (not too bitter, not too sweet)
  • Soft chewy sweet center, of pure organic real banana with absolutely nothing added, no sugar/oil/sulfites/artificial colors or flavors
  • Artisan crafted from cacao bean to finished treat entirely at the point-of-origin in Peru, ensuring exceptional quality and supporting sustainable farmers and their communities

The creators founded Kopali Organics while they were living and farming on their off-the-grid permaculture farm and sustainability center in the rainforest of Costa Rica. They noticed that close to their farm, and surrounding farms were low-flying airplanes that were spraying toxic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides on the banana plantations, on the workers there and the families, and on homes and water supply in the same area.

They saw labor practices that developed when large agriculture takes over and is the only source of income for people trying their best to feed their families. They noticed their friends used natural and sustainable practices on their farms and could taste and tell how much better the organic food was–not only because it contained no chemicals or toxins, but also because it tasted better.

They knew without help, large industrial farms with unfair labor conditions would drive the small family farmers around them out of business and off of their land. so they created Kopali Organics to share naturally delicious, pure, and healthy foods, and to support organic family farmers and their communities.

Kopali Organics makes Fair Trade and Organic Certified chocolates. They mix antioxidant-rich dark chocolate and healthy fruits to make delicious treats. They make chocolate-covered cacao nibs, goji berries, bananas, mulberries and espresso beans which are all vegan and gluten-free with no refined sugars, cholesterol, trans fats, dairy, or animal products.
