Oakland Chocolate Company provides high quality, delicious chocolates while also serving
as a model, worker-owned cooperative whose farmer members in the Parish of St. Mary, Jamaica, are linked to the candy makers
The farmers are planting
new cocoa trees and working toward an organic product, that will be fairly traded.
We aspire to help Jamaican small farmers form a cooperative to build a new organic fermentary with
a green energy drying facility and market their cocoa beans to other chocolate companies as well as providing beans for the
fine chocolate collection of our own company.
