But what makes FBC a “quintessential Asheville experience,” to use their own words? Owners Dan and Jael Rattigan have molded a chocolate making process defined by integrity, love, and gratitude, along with an unwavering commitment to sustainability. They use environmentally friendly packaging whenever possible and share their cacao shell mulch to support local soil fertility. When it comes to sourcing their cacao throughout Central America and Peru, they pay above commodity prices, in a way to nurture long-lasting relationships with farmers and suppliers. Just like Earth Equity Advisors, their commitment to responsible business practices has earned FBC Certified B Corporation status, an honor reserved for businesses truly devoted to doing good for the world.
