The coaco tree does not grow in many places.  About 70% of our cocoa comes from West Africa and Central America. The life of a cocoa farmer is very challenging, and the demand of the product is quite high. Sadly this has led to children being traffic and sold to farmers. Epsy's Sweet Shop believes we can do better and should do better.  We have taken a stance against the inhumane practice of child slavery, and we feel it was important to partner with companies who share the same values.  Therefore, our chocolate products are made from fair trade chocolate from farms that do not engage in child slavery. 

We invite you to join the cause of promoting a more just and compassionate world by knowing the hands that grow and produce your food and the corporations that distribute and sell them.
