There is a *terrific* fair trade, organic chocolate company based out of Seattle called Theo's. Check it out.

|Divine is the Fairtrade chocolate company co-owned by the cocoa farmers cooperative Kuapa Kokoo, who not only receive a fair price for their cocoa but also share in the company's profit.|
Is Trader Joe's cocoa powder OK?
I doubt it--our friends brought some TJs truffles over for New Year's eve. The label said "organic" all over it--I bet they would have boasted about fair trade just as prominently if they'd been able to.
So where can I get FT chocolate baking items--cocoa powder, bakers chocolate, chocolate chips, that sort of thing? I've looked through a few of these websites and they seem to deal more in candy type chocolate.
Here is a very useful chart of who owns which 'organic' company.
The Green & Black isn't on it though.
I love Endangered Species. Does anyone know if that's still okay?
