About the Grenada Chocolate Company

01

The Business

This radical new business model created the first “Tree to Bar” chocolate this century, adding all the value to the local economy in the village of Hermitage, St Patricks. Mott Green often said “It takes a whole village to make a bar of our chocolate”; the factory produces high quality organic dark chocolate in Grenada using the world famous Trinitario cocoa beans that grow right on their own doorstep. The chocolate factory is nestled in lush cocoa groves in Grenada’s pristine rainforest.

02

The Awards

The internationally award-winning organic dark chocolate has the wonderful complex flavour of Grenada’s fine-flavored organic cocoa beans, processed carefully in small batches. Producing chocolate right where the cocoa grows allows the co-operative to do its own fermenting which gives a real advantage in creating the finest, most complex phenolic profile from the beans. The other important factor is that fresh beans are used to make the chocolate rather than ones that have been shipped half way around the world and might be months or even years old.

03

The Product

The GCC is one of very few small-scale chocolate-makers producing fine chocolate where the cocoa grows. Because small batch chocolate-making is extremely rare, the GCC had to create many of their own processing methods, designing specialist small scale machines and refurbishing antique equipment to meet the requirements of their unique situation. Most of the machines were designed in the early 1900’s, harking back to a time when quality had precedence over quantity in the world of chocolate-making.

The Founders

Mott Green (April 15, 1966 — June 1, 2013) was an American businessman and chocolatier, who founded the Grenada Chocolate Company in 1999. Its slogan was “tree to bar”. Joining with a friend from Eugene, Ore., Doug Brown, he studied chocolate production in San Francisco. Working in Eugene, the men restored old machines from Europe and built new ones themselves. By the late ’90s they had shipped everything to Grenada. By the mid-1990s he had moved to Grenada, where he initially lived in a remote hut he had built himself. It, too, relied on solar energy, in part to power Mr. Green’s passion for music.
