Seattle, WA boasts the first organic/fair-trade chocolate factory in the United States.
Theo Chocolate took over an old brewery in the Fremont district of the Pacific Northwest city last January. It is a small operation compared to its mega (non-organic) counterparts, which produce the confection for companies like Hershey’s and Nestle.
Theo founder, Joel Whinney not only wants to pursue the fine art of chocolate, but also wants to improve the lives of cocoa growers around the world.
Theo Chocolate is currently available at retail outlets on the west coast of the U.S., or you can download an order form off of their website.
