As a manufacturer of confections, Boehm’s Candies purchases bulk chocolate from several different suppliers to create our own custom blend of chocolate. We are proud to source from chocolate manufacturers who are working hard to produce exceptional cocoa products that are environmentally sustainable while educating farmers and strengthening farming practices. Protecting the wellbeing of children and families and establishing fair wages is also a high priority.
Among other internal commitments and programs, each supplier is a member of the International Cocoa Initiative, which promotes child protection in cocoa growing communities and works to safeguard child rights. See www.cocoainitiative.org for more information.
Our suppliers are also members of the World Cocoa Foundation, whose vision is “a sustainable and thriving cocoa sector – where farmers prosper, cocoa-growing communities are empowered, human rights are respected, and the environment is conserved.” Please see www.worldcocoafoundation.org for more information.
