FINE & RAW was established in 2007 in a notorious Williamsburg, Brooklyn artist loft by Daniel Sklaar. Daniel launched into making small chocolate batches and sharing them with friends...he then started delivering them on his bicycle to local purveyors of fine food. It was apparent that the chocolate flavor was so good it was borderline addictive. The company grew based on the premise of producing organic, unparalleled quality chocolate and a shear love of the chocolate making process. FINE & RAW designs and manufactures artisan chocolate bars, truffles, spreads and well, anything their imaginations can think of it. They start by sourcing the worlds finest cacao beans and specialize in clean ingredients lists. Their products are always organic, plant-based, and next level, with a focus on sustainability. They achieve this by having a radically-transparent cacao supply chain, which is focused on quality and direct relationships with cacao farmers in Ghana and Ecuador. FINE & RAW ensures that their farmers are paid above fair trade wages, believing farmers should have the economic freedom and empowerment to farm organically and develop sustainable land management practices.
