Kallari Chocolate Featured on Gozamos
Kallari Chocolate was recently featured in both a video interview and written piece on Gozamos, an online magazine for young Latinos in Chicago. See the full article here.
From the article:
I first discovered Kallari one evening, late in October, when a man named Edison Mamallacta spoke at a Chicago Fair Trade event called Globalfest Latin America held at the National Museum of Mexican Art. Because it was a Fair Trade event, he spoke at length (he’s the marketing director for Kallari) about how the Kitchwa people of Ecuador who make Kallari Chocolate benefit from the Fair Trade movement. Ironically, Kallari bars don’t bear the Fair Trade Federation seal because this would mean paying $.08 per pound of their cacao for the Kallari farmers. This also means that the Fair Trade Federation are genuine and true and are not bound by technicalities but by the courage of their convictions. It’s yet one more beautiful part of the story of Kallari.
