Fruition Chocolate Works
Bronze Supporting Business Member of LCN
Small Batch Bean to Bar Chocolate. At Fruition we begin by selecting ethically sourced and flavorful cocoa beans. Using traditional and modern techniques, we handcraft our award-winning line of bean to bar chocolate and confections at our chocolate workshop in the Catskill Mountains of New York.
The Madagascar Sambirano 74% Dark Chocolate bar is a fruity dark chocolate made with cacao from Akesson’s Estate, and highlights notes of raspberry and citrus. This bar was a 2019 Good Food Award Finalist.
Beyond Good Chocolate
Beyond Good (formerly Madecasse) makes delicious chocolate and vanilla with a direct trade philosophy.
We go beyond fair trade. We know the farmers we work with, and they know us. We share meals in their homes and a vision for prosperity. Our mission is to make chocolate entirely in Madagascar. This reverses trends that have long held back economic growth in Madagascar.
All of MIA Foodie’s Madagascar chocolate is both sourced and produced in Madagascar. A portion of sales also supports their Girls Education Fund, which provides funding for secondary students in Antananarivo, Madagascar.
Home and Personal Goods
Tanana Silk makes beautiful, unique, handmade silk textiles found nowhere else in the world. They are a project of LCN member CPALI (Conservation through Poverty International).
Crafted in the rainforests of Madagascar, our non-spun textiles are produced using a no-kill method that conserves vital rainforest without harming silkworms or other species. Malagasy farmers raise and harvest the silkworms, and refine the final products into beautiful silk textiles. 100% of profits are returned directly to Madagascar.
Perfumes and Oils
Velvet & Sweet Pea’s Purrfumery
Portions of sales from the Luminous Lemurs perfume are donated to Centre ValBio. The perfume is made in a base of jojoba oil and beeswax, and has Blood orange, Madagascar ylang ylang essential oil and concrete, Egyptian carnation, antique clove bud, nutmeg & cinnamon, 20 year old sandalwood, and 20 year old Madagascar vanilla.
