At Federation Artisan Chocolate and Every Man and His Dog Vineyard, people often ask us why we go the extra mile to create chocolate from scratch, when it would be simpler and cheaper to use pre-made chocolate from someone else. The answer lies in our unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on the world around us. We are not just passionate about crafting delicious chocolates and exquisite wines, but we also uphold the values of quality and sustainability as one of Australia's few Bean to Bar chocolate businesses.
Our journey starts at the very source – the cacao beans. We strive to directly source our beans from small community farms in Peru, Papua New Guinea, and other regions of the cocoa growing world. It is our hope to build close relationships with these farming communities, creating relationships that not only ensure the finest quality beans, but we also contribute to the sustainable development of their communities.
Supporting local farmers is at the core of our mission. We firmly believe in fair trade practices and pay above-market prices, ensuring that farmers receive fair compensation for their hard work. This approach not only improves their livelihoods, but also empowers them to invest in their farms, families, and futures.
We are dedicated to expanding the core of our business that involves directly sourcing cacao beans from small community farms. Through this endeavor, we actively promote environmental sustainability. The farmers we work with employ traditional and organic farming practices, ensuring the preservation of land biodiversity and minimising the use of harmful pesticides. We are immensely proud to support their diligent efforts in maintaining the delicate balance between agriculture and nature.
However, our commitment doesn't stop there. Our next steps is to actively engaged in projects that give back to the communities that nurture our cacao beans. Through collaborations with local organisations in Peru, Papua New Guinea, and beyond, we wish to support initiatives focused on education, healthcare, and infrastructure development. Together with our partners, we aim to create a lasting positive impact on the lives of the farmers and their families.
We are not just dedicated to global impact; we also prioritise supporting our local community. By actively participating in local events, fundraisers, and charities that align with our values, we strive to spread sweetness and joy to both our customers and those in need.
