Do you have environmentally-friendly practices? What is a B Corp?
Yes! As much as possible, Rescue Chocolate is devoted to limiting our impact on the environment. In addition to being a vegan company, we have been certified as a B Corporation. This is an independent, rigorous, and transparent standard to quantify a business' capacity to create environmental and social good.

 

How does Rescue Chocolate save lives?
Every month or so, Rescue Chocolate picks a far-reaching animal rescue organization. A portion of the sale price of EACH chocolate bar goes to this organization. 

 

Do you ship internationally?
Rescue Chocolate does ship internationally. We will use USPS rather than UPS. Our website currently isn’t able to reflect this, but we keep a close eye out for international orders ship them out via USPS. Your account is refunded the difference after we ship your order.

 

Is chocolate healthy?
Chocolate IS healthy. When not impeded by dairy and massive amounts of sugar, chocolate’s high antioxidant levels do their magic. Chocolate has been shown to do much to improve health: it lowers blood pressure, absorbs free radicals; lessons pain, and promotes alertness.

 

Is PayPal Secure?
Indeed! PayPal protects your financial information with industry-leading security and fraud prevention systems. When you use PayPal, your financial information is not shared with the merchant. Rest assured, PayPal is the way to go!

Tell me about your Kosher symbol 

The EarthKosher logo on our sleeves assures you that we are certified by this highly trusted kosher certification agency. The certification is provided via the Tumbador Chocolate factory in Brooklyn, where our products are produced.

 

Where does your chocolate come from? 

The special variety of chocolate that you experience in a Rescue Chocolate bar comes from the Guittard Chocolate company, which produces one of the most sought-after multiple-origin couvertures in the world. It was selected by our executive chef Jean Francois Bonnet precisely for its satisfying flavor notes and its ability to blend seamlessly with spices and other ingredients. Guittard is also the company through which we assure that our chocolate is organic and fairly traded.

 

How does Rescue Chocolate save lives? 

In the past, Rescue Chocolate picked a differed animal rescue organization every month to receive a portion of the sale price of our chocolate bars and truffles. This year we have moved to an annual beneficiary model so that the impact of our donation can be far larger for the recipient. But we still enjoy partnering with hundreds of rescue groups in 2 other ways:

 

  1.  The groups’ members/clients/volunteers/friends are invited to order Rescue Chocolate online and type the group name into the Gift Note field on the Cart before Checkout. We give back $1 on every item ordered (excluding mini bars).

 

  1.  The groups order a selection of Rescue Chocolate at our below-wholesale rate and then re-sell at their adoption events, auctions, or other fund-raisers at the regular retail rate. This way, they earn about $2 profit on each product sold.
