Fair Trade Certified and Organic Chocolate List

[Last Updated: 4 March, 2005] This is intended to be a continuously maintained list of fair trade certified (FTC) and organic chocolate vendors. It is important to note that FTC certification is given to products and not vendors. Thus, some vendors have multiple FTC prodcuts while others have only one or two FTC products.
Manufacturer Fair Trade Certified Organic Practices Hot Chocolate? Where to buy
Art Bars (Ithaca Fine Chocolates) FTC Yes No www.ithacafinechocolates.com

  • FTC = Fair Trade Certified by FLO standards
  • CCOF = Organic certified by CCOF standards

If you do know of other vendors/manufacturers, that are FTC or certified organic, please let me know. I'll add them to the list.


  1. Cocoavino uses Green & Black's chocolate which is FTC and CCOF certified. It also tries to use other organic ingredients when it can. It sells Green & Black's Hot Chocolate.
  2. As far as I know Lake Champlain only makes one product that is fair trade & organic: a hot chocolate. None of their other products seem to be either organic or fair trade.
