Norman Love Confections becomes first U.S. chocolatier to lend hand to Peruvian rice stove project


FORT MYERS, Fla. (Nov. 4, 2013) – With the launch of its Love Origins line of premium eating chocolates, Norman Love Confections is working to help improve the lives of cocoa farmers while also supporting sustainable agriculture.

“Just as we work to help improve lives in our own community, we want to help improve living conditions for those who work to provide such wonderful ingredients and yet lack basic necessities and live with serious health hazards,” said Norman Love. “Supporting Love Origins is about supporting socially and environmentally responsible cacao farms and bettering the lives of the people who live and work there; it is about rewarding companies that exceed the current standards of fair trade regulations and pay farmers up to 40 percent more than above fair trade prices; it’s about the benefits of organic products and investing in the future of cocoa by supporting those who use sustainable practices and promote sustainable research.”
