All ingredients in Zazubean chocolates are 100% organic certified by USDA, this ensures consumers that all ingredients in the chocolates are grown, processed and handled in a way that is consistent with the national organic standards. Meaning that the methods used integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering may not be used.
Cocoa beans are one of the most pesticide intensive crops in the world. Because Zazubean cares about health, all the beans in our chocolate are organically farmed using traditional shade grown agriculture that is pesticide free which protects not only your health, but the species living in these organic cocoa producing areas.
