Choose Pleasure With Purpose™
to Social Responsibility
Making only the finest, most delicious, silky smooth chocolate is what we expect from ourselves, day in and day out. It’s
why we’re the only bean-to-bar company to roast our own beans and to oversee
every single step in the chocolate-making process.
But creating the finest chocolate
product is not the only thing that moves us. Our attention to detail and craft
extends beyond taste – and strives for an even greater purpose.

improve their voice in financial decisions. CARE’s Village Savings and Loan
Association program provides women with a safe place to save their money,
access small loans and invest in their families and futures.
All of that combined – the pleasure and the purpose – is what makes Dove Chocolate Discoveries
different from every other chocolate brand on the market today. When you
purchase Dove Chocolate Discoveries products, you’re not only supporting an
entrepreneur here in the United States, you’re enabling a woman in Côte d'lvoire to access funds to start a business as well!
