A Glimpse into Positive Change

Single Estate Origin

UP-UP's commitment to positive change is evident in its sourcing practices. All cocoa used in UP-UP's chocolate is of single estate origin, sourced from a farm in the Necocli region of Colombia. By making chocolate at the origin, UP-UP ensures more wealth stays within the local community, creating legal jobs and enabling cocoa farmers to earn a living wage.

Slave Free Certification

In partnership with slavefreetrade.org, UP-UP has embarked on a mission to address the challenges of child and forced labor in the chocolate industry. Quarterly surveys conducted by Slavefreetrade assess every aspect of UP-UP's cocoa supply chain, aligning with the 10 principles of decent work and international human rights law. UP-UP's dedication to these principles ensures fair and just treatment for everyone involved.

Palm Oil Free

UP-UP takes a stand against deforestation by ensuring none of its chocolates contain palm oil. Embracing a human-first approach to chocolate production, UP-UP uses only cocoa-derived products, allowing for greater control over flavor complexity and improved product stability during shelf life.
