I wanted to share something with you that hopefully you'll find as inspirational, exciting and tasty as I do.
We're about to launch a Kickstarter campaign to support a cocoa legend/farmer in Bougainville toimprove the quality of his beans and then buy them at a premium price. We're going to sail them from Bougainville, Papua New Guinea to Wellington, New Zealand and then make the first Bougainville chocolate bar out of them to given back to project backers and our Bougainville partners.
Bougainville once had fine quality cocoa but the industry suffered, as did the rest of the region, from war and neglect. They are rebuilding and we want to help put their cocoa back on the map!This isan adventure built on passion for great food, ethical business, sustainability and amazing people and places.
Please share our blog site andfollowthe journey:http://thewellingtonchocolatevoyage.wordpress.com/the-project/
We are launching on the 6th of November 2014and we hope that you can spreadthis around all your friends and networks, and be part of creating a better tasting world.
