Seattle Chocolate's small and mighty company is owned and led by CEO Jean Thompson, a seasoned and self-taught chocolatier. Their entire chocolate line is certified Kosher, and many varieties are also non GMO project verified, gluten-free and vegan. Seattle Chocolate has a deep commitment to giving back to their roots, while also supporting and donating to organizations that better the lives of American families, specifically those groups dedicated to abolishing hunger here in the U.S. In 2012, Seattle Chocolate created the jcoco brand with a focus on feeding hungry families, at its core. For each jcoco bar sold, they donate a serving of fresh healthy food to one of their four food bank partners.
They are passionate about cacao and the people and communities who grow it. Seattle Chocolate began using Rainforest Alliance Certified™ cocoa in their core line in April 2014. Rainforest Alliance certification is a long term, robust, and sustainable approach to addressing unjust labor practices, preserving and protecting the environment, and bettering the economic situation of cocoa farmers and their families. Today they have 37 bars that bear the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ cocoa seal, including their beloved San Juan Sea Salt truffle bar. Look for the frog logo on the back of all of their bars.
Starting January 1, 2022, Seattle Chocolate Co. will be donating 10% of net profits on all Seattle Chocolate branded products to Girls Inc.
“Our mission has always been to make the world brighter through chocolate, especially when it comes to empowering girls and women. As a woman-owned company, we know that magic happens when everyone has a voice; it makes us bolder, pushes us to take risks, and honestly, it’s a lot more fun. Now, every time you purchase Seattle Chocolate – whether it’s our everyday bars, truffles or seasonal collections – you will be making a difference in the lives of a new generation of movers, shakers, and change-makers!”
Seattle Chocolate’s smooth, twist wrapped melt away truffles and whimsically wrapped chocolate bars are carefully prepared using only the highest quality all natural ingredients and Rainforest Alliance Certified Chocolate.
Seattle Chocolates also brings you jcoco, a fresh, contemporary approach to American chocolate. Beautiful packaging and unique taste combinations set this line apart. Created with a strong philanthropic mission, giving back to the community is at the heart of Jcoco’s mission.
