Oakland Chocolate Company provides high quality, delicious chocolates while also serving
as a model, worker-owned cooperative whose farmer members in the Parish of St. Mary, Jamaica, are linked to the candy makers
The farmers are planting
new cocoa trees and working toward an organic product, that will be fairly traded.
We aspire to help Jamaican small farmers get a better price for their beans through the formation
of the Jamaican Cocoa Farmers Association and any other methods that pay the farmer fairly for his/her products.
