Hi Everyone! I was hoping that someone could help me find a distributor that carries organic chocolate. I am in Chicago and although I have found a few manufacturers of organic chocolate I can't find anyone that carries it. I'd really appreciate your help.
I'm not sure what sort of chocolate you're looking for (retail bars, wafers for coverture, cocoa, baking chips, etc.), but a source I've had good luck with (and which has a variety of organic and fair trade certified items) is:
Sweet Earth Chocolates
Phone: (805) 544-7759
Fax (805) 544-7756
Address: 1491 Monterey St.
San Luis Obispo, CA 93401
They are nice folks to deal with, will sell in almost any quantity, and work to get the shipping costs as low as possible. The wholesale price of the chocolate is higher than some other providers, but in the ballpark.
Another good source is:
Work: (715) 386-1737
Fax: (715) 386-3277
They have organic and fair trade bulk chocolate (wafers, nibs, cocoa). Prices are good, but you generally have to purchase it in fairly large volumes.
Hope that this helps,
Confections With Convictions, LLC
116 W. Crosstown Pkwy., Ste. 101
Kalamazoo, MI 49001
Thanks so much for your help. I am looking to buy bulk organic chocolate to create my own line of chocolates. These places look great. I will contact them first thing.
