Fair Trade Chocolate Healthy and Socially Responsible Alternative for Valentine's Day Giving
Fair Trade organic chocolate products offer a healthier alternative for gift giving to loved ones this February and are available at food co-ops and health food stores.
Valatie, NY (I-Newswire) January 16, 2013 - Instead of typical chocolate hearts this February, giving Fair Trade Organic chocolates for Valentine's Day offers a healthy alternative and has a positive global and economic impact, according to Tierra Farm.
Fair Trade certification ensures that growers around the globe are getting paid fair wages and no child laborers grew the cocoa product, while the USDA Certified Organic label shows that pesticides weren’t used.
Great for Valentine’s giving and healthy snacking year-round, Tierra Farm chocolate covered nuts and fruits are USDA Certified Organic and kosher, says CEO Darren Grout.
Tierra Farm starts with its dry roasted and specialty flavored organic nuts (almond, walnut, cashew, curry cashew, macadamia and hazelnut) and coats them in small batches with the most premium Fair Trade 65 percent dark chocolate made in the U.S. for the smoothest dark chocolate taste, the companys says.
Other suggestions for giving to special loved ones are organic cherries, flame raisins, goji berries, ginger, cranberries, coconut or espresso beans coated in Fair Trade Dark Chocolate from Tierra Farm.
A personalized giving suggestion is mixing and matching favorites by buying bulk at a natural food co-op or health store that carries Tierra Farm’s products and packaging in your own heart-shaped containers or red boxes. Products also are available pre-packed in a variety of sizes at Tierra Farm’s retail shop in Valatie, NY or on the Web site.
Tierra Farm products can be purchased online at http://www.tierrafarm.com/chocolatecovered.aspx or from natural food cooperatives and independent health food stores in nearly 30 states. To locate a retailer, click here: http://www.tierrafarm.com/storelocator.aspx.
