    We're extremely excited to be able to bring you this beautiful bar of premium quality chocolate handcrafted in Cornwall, England, made from cocoa lovingly grown in the depths of the incredible Gola rainforest, Sierra Leone. With only two ingredients (cocoa beans and unrefined sugar), this 70% dark chocolate delivers a rich, sumptuous experience - a tribute to the hard work put in to produce this bar.

    Gola Rainforest Chocolate is made from cocoa beans that are grown under the shade of forest trees in areas surrounding Sierra Leone’s Gola Rainforest National Park, where the RSPB has been working for over 30 years. Commodities like cocoa can be drivers for destructive deforestation, but the RSPB has been collaborating with local partners on a sustainable management model for the Gola Rainforest, where commodities like cocoa can be grown in harmony with the rainforest. Gola Rainforest Cocoa is grown on sustainable, ethical and environmentally conscious farms, by communities living around the Park.

    This biodiversity hotspot supports many endangered species including pygmy hippos, forest elephants and chimpanzees, as well as more than 300 bird and 600 butterfly species.

    Gola farmers manage the land in ways that benefit forest wildlife. Selling these chocolate bars is helping them to build a profitable business. We must ensure they receive higher prices for their premium quality, single-origin cocoa - rewarding them for their role in protecting the rainforest and its unique biodiversity.
