Resembling a golden raisin but with a flavor that’s more sweet and tart, golden berries are high in protein and vitamin A and very low in sugar. They’re also loaded with antioxidants and flavonoids that promote cardiovascular health and other benefits. Golden berries and chocolate are sustainably harvested contributing to the social and economic development of indigenous communities in Peru while protecting the rainforest. Our organic dark chocolate covered Golden Berries are a treat that's actually good for you and makes a great gift for chocolate lovers.

  • Each box contains 7 oz. (200 gr.) of Chocolate Covered Golden Berries
  • USDA Certified Organic and Fair Trade
  • Small boxes of chocolate covered Brazil nut pieces also available

Handmade and fair trade imported from Peru.

 

Candela Peru Artisan Story
Peru

Madre de Dios, a mountainous area of pristine forests, is one of the poorest regions of Peru. The most lucrative industry here is the collection and processing of the Amazon (Brazil) nut into oils, candy and candles for export. Unfortunately, few producers are informed or rewarded for extracting the oil in a sustainable manner meaning the region's rates of rainforest destruction are almost as high as its poverty. 

Candela Peru is an alternative biotrade organization which began acting as a fair trade business in the brazil nut industry in 1989 in order to improve circumstances for this region of Peru.
