In 1983, Chantal Coady founded award-winning luxury chocolate brand Rococo. Nearly three decades later and Rococo Chocolates are a renowned brand that sell globally online and have four shops throughout the UK – all the while supporting ethical trade for cocoa farmers. Rococo’s impressive CSR credentials include no animal testing, complying with global labour standards and using recyclable packaging. They are FSC-certified and make efforts to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions across the company.
In 2004, the year that Hurricanes Ivan and Emily hit Grenada, Rococo worked with their good friends at the Grenada Chocolate Company to support them through this difficult time producing the ‘the Hurricane Emily’ chocolate bar where all proceeds went to ‘Hearts & Hands’ - the Grenada Relief Fund.
Following this project, in 2007 Rococo teamed up with the Grenada Chocolate Company and purchased a small cocoa farm so they would be able to produce their own fairly traded, ethical chocolate. This plot of land is now affectionately called Grococo and now the ‘home farm’ that supplies 100% of its harvest of fine flavoured organic Trinitario cocoa beans to the Grenada Chocolate Company. It's also one of the founding farms that make up the Grenada Organic Cocoa Farmers' Cooperative. All of Rococo's organic products now include their own Grococo beans.
