Endangered Species Chocolate gets even sweeter

Effective in January for a minimum of three years, Endangered Species Chocolate will donate the greater of 10 percent of its new profits, or $10,000 a year, to both African Wildlife Foundation and SEEtheWild.

"ESC selects 10 percent partners for their vigorous and transparent mission to support species and habitat conservation in harmony with humanity," according to a news release from the Indianapolis-based chocolate maker.

Also in the new year, ESC will further its commitment to the work of its foundation, created in 2009 to fund several on-the-ground sustainability projects serving the communities where the company sources its cocoa. From supporting health care, clean water, and education initiatives in Ivory Coast to helping farmers purchase weed whackers and produce healthy, high-yield cacao trees in Ecuador, all foundation programs are guided by the expressed needs of cacao farmers.
