Maverick Chocolate is a multi-award winning brand and owns their original chocolate factory. This bean-to-bar chocolate maker is ethically traded and locally made in Cincinnati and only uses pure ingredients, organic cocoa beans, organic cane sugar and is also soy-free.
The chocolate is hand crafted in small batches from bean to the finished bar for the adventurous palate. Maverick ethically sources cacao beans-bought directly from farmers and co-ops at sustainable prices; the beans are from Belize, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Peru.
The brand operates on a Direct Trade model, purchasing our cacao beans so farmers and co-ops receive over $500 per metric ton over the market price. They also work in co-operation with other craft chocolate makers to import cacao from the farms into the US.
