CHOCOLATE WITH A CONSCIENCE
Donations are funneled through Endangered Species Chocolate Foundation, the non-profit arm of Endangered Species Chocolate.
Starting out as a humble chocolate company nestled in the Oregon’s Rogue Valley in 1993, Endangered Species Chocolate was created to spread awareness and make an impact on the growing number of plant and animal species disappearing from the Earth.
We began with a line of twelve all-natural chocolate bars that sold well in small natural food stores across the northwest. Today, we are one of the leaders in natural and organic chocolate manufacturing.
With more than 30 all-natural and organic products, our chocolates can now be found in large and small natural and conventional grocers throughout the U.S.A. and Canada. Based now in Indianapolis, Indiana, we remain privately-owned and operated and are inspired to expand on the original ideals that started this company.
