Delicious Chocolate, Driven by Purpose
DAGOBA Organic Chocolate is America’s original organic chocolate. Thoughtfully sourced. Carefully crafted.
At DAGOBA, we’ve always believed that chocolate has a deeper purpose. Founded 16 years ago and manufactured in Ashland, Oregon from globally sourced ingredients, the DAGOBA chocolate brand was one of the very first organic chocolate makers in the U.S. And for 16 years, our passion for high-quality cacao has been matched only by our passion for the natural environment and human communities where our cacao comes from.
Today we continue to honor the richness and complexity of great cacao through thoughtful sourcing of our beans and the careful crafting of our organic chocolate. As we have since the very beginning, we continue to use innovative organic flavor infusions to complement our chocolate in surprising and delightful ways.
Most importantly, we continue to deepen our sense of purpose, to evolve as a brand, by seeking new and more impactful ways to sustainably source cacao and give back to the communities that grow and process our cacao. Today DAGOBA Organic Chocolate uses only USDA Organic-certified cacao beans from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms and Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients, resulting in chocolate that helps promote a more sustainable planet. From rainforest ecosystems to the social and economic systems of cacao communities, our true purpose is to create delicious organic chocolate.
In 2016, the DAGOBA brand established the One for All Cacao Project – a nonprofit fund investing in infrastructure, education and women's self-empowerment within cacao communities. The One for All Cacao Project allows us to shine a light on the unique challenges and opportunities facing those who grow and harvest cacao and help strengthen the valuable role of women in these communities.
Our first 16 years have been more than sweet. They've been an exciting, challenging, rewarding evolution — and we can’t wait to see what's next. Above all, we're thrilled to continue offering thoughtfully sourced, carefully crafted organic chocolate that not only tastes so good, but that you can feel so good about, with every delightful bite.
The One For All Cacao Project is an initiative of New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity that manages a range of public interest, sustainability, and social impact programs. To learn more, visit https://www.dagobachocolate.com/en_us/news/one-for-all-cacao.html.
