Fair Trade Organic Chocolate – Kosher
Delicious chocolate, fair trade and free of child labor, and Kosher to boot! The dark chocolate flavors are also Kosher for Passover! These products are soy and gluten free.
With deep appreciation to Rabbi Menachem Creditor who offers this inspiring kavanah:
Every generation learns that things are more than they seem. This chocolate I hold is more than just chocolate. This is a symbol of potential freedom, a realization that foods that give me delight can be made without child labor. Joy need not be accompanied by pain or oppression. May I experience the sweet flavor of this gift as a hint of the freedom that birthed it. May the world know liberation, one person at a time, mindful act by mindful act, until all people are free.
With the exception of the Milk Chocolate, which is Kosher, the other flavors are all also Kosher for Passover — These products received approval as “Kosher for Passover” by Rabbi Aaron Alexander, ex-Associate Dean, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies at the American Jewish University. They are listed in the Conservative Passover guide under the category of items that do not need a special Kosher for Passover certification if purchased in advance, and in the home before bedikat chametz (the night before first Seder). They are also vegan and gluten-free.
Meet the Artist: Equal Exchange
Equal Exchange has created Big Change for over 25 years. It all started with an idea: what if food could be traded in a way that is honest and fair, a way that empowers both farmers and consumers? Our founders - Rink Dickinson, Jonathan Rosenthal and Michael Rozyne - asked this question as they envisioned a trade model that values farmers and consumers. So they took a big risk and plunged full-force into changing a broken food system. In 1986, they started with fairly traded coffee from Nicaragua and didn't look back.Learn More
