Fog City News, San Francisco’s foremost purveyor of international chocolate bars and magazines welcomes Mott Green, co-founder and chocolate maker of Grenada Chocolate Company Ltd. located in the cocoa groves of the pristine rainforest of Grenada, West Indies. Founded in 1999 with the idea of creating an organic cocoa farmer’s cooperative, Grenada Chocolate produces small batch organic dark chocolate with cocoa beans grown on over 150 acres of organic cocoa farms in their cooperative in Grenada. Grenada Chocolate is produced using solar powered refurbished vintage equipment and is made with certified organic cocoa beans, their own extracted cocoa butter, fine organic raw sugar produced and milled by an organic growers’ cooperative in Paraguay, whole organic vanilla beans grown bio-dynamically in Costa Rica and a trace of organic soy lecithin used as an emulsifier. Co-founder Mott Green is in the Bay Area for an exclusive appearance at Fog City News to answer questions and talk about the joys and challenges of Grenada Chocolate. This Friday, February 29, 2008, 12:30 - 2PM.
Be one of the first in the U.S. to taste this rare chocolate! Bars will be available for sale at Fog City News once Grenada finalizes arrangements with a North American distributor. For more information about Grenada Chocolate, go to Grenada Chocolate's website.
All events are open to the public and are part of Fog City News’ ongoing effort to educate customers by introducing them to some of today’s notable and innovative chocolate manufacturers, confectioners and experts.
