Ubuntu Chocolate’s founder is Jeremy Wickremer, also the founder of Ideal Media. Having organised a series of food festivals in London, Ubuntu Chocolate was borne from Jeremy’s love of good food and artisan chocolates. Their chocolates are of the highest quality, with their recipes combining tasty natural ingredients and high quality cocoa.
His media company, Ideal Media, seeks to help solve social, environmental and economic challenges and these ideas are also the basis for Ubuntu Chocolate. Ubuntu is a Zulu word meaning togetherness and humanity to others and the company’s motto is “we are all connected”.
At Ubuntu Chocolate they aim to help preserve the lifestyles of indigenous communities that work with cocoa. They are also involved in helping preserve tropical rainforest and the natural habitat of the cocoa tree. This is done largely through their contribution to courses on leadership and sustainable business from the UPeace Centre for Executive Education.
In 2012, Ubuntu Chocolate provided sweet treats at the Transformational Media summit, a global gathering of experts passionate about the power of media to do good.
