Impact: The Chocolate good-guys, & the home team, made with pride in the land flowing of wine & money – California – across the SF Bay from Napa grapes & up the 101 Freeway from Silicon Valley. Industrial-sized with an internal line producing artisan-level chocolate. 4th generation family-affair – that haven in a heartless world – headed by Gary Guittard, the great-grandson of company founder Étienne. Better than Fair-Trade, Guittard often sources cacáo directly from estate owners / growers.
