Daintree Estates chocolate is the first commercially produced chocolate in the world to be made from cocoa grown in Australia. Choose chocolate with the lowest food miles, with the cocoa grown near Mossman, north of Cairns.
Daintree Cocoa’s growers are both suppliers and shareholders in the company. They are a co-operative enterprise, meaning all co-op shareholders enjoy the value-adding opportunities of Daintree Cocoa’s supply chain structure, and the local businesses and communities of Mossman and surrounding towns do also. Because the growing and manufacturing is done in Australia, the chocolate is not able to be Fairtrade certified, as that accreditation is only available to third world countries. Growers and staff are all paid fairly in line with Australian labour laws which protect exploitation, underage labour or slavery.
