The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal can be found on Cachet Organic Tablets. Rainforest Alliance certification stands for both biodiversity conservation and sustainable livelihoods, helping to protect the environment, improve agricultural practices and support farming families and their communities.
For our organic Cachet tablets range, Kim's Chocolates sources cocoa from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. We source this cocoa using the mass balance system, meaning our supply chain purchases a volume of Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa equivalent to the volume of cocoa used in these products. With the large amounts of cocoa we buy and the cost of keeping the certified cocoa separate, the certified cocoa is mixed with uncertified cocoa that meets our quality and flavour requirements. While this means we cannot guarantee that certified cocoa ends up in every individual product with the Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa sourcing label, we know that by working with the Rainforest Alliance our purchases help support better living conditions for cocoa farmers and make a difference to the environment. This means the benefit to cocoa farmers is the same.
