For our fine flavour cocoa chocolates ›Rausch Plantagen‹ we have deliberately decided against the use of seals such as ›Fairtrade‹ or ›UTZ‹. These seals are not quality indicators, they »only« document compliance with defined standards. Each of these seals has a different focus in dealing with sustainably and fairly grown food.
We have a much more comprehensive claim to our work, which none of the common seals can meet. The claims and guidelines for our fine flavour cocoa chocolates ›Rausch Plantagen‹ are far above existing certification offerings. We know each partner personally and guarantee the cocoa farmers prices significantly above the world market level through cooperative partnership. Since we largely dispense with middlemen, this higher price directly benefits the cocoa farmers.
The world market price is based on consumer cocoa. Fine flavour cocoa is always traded at a significantly higher price than consumer cocoa, as cultivation is more costly and yields lower. By working closely with the cocoa farmers, we ensure quality control from the moment of cultivation.
