Doing Our Part
Social Responsibility & Sustainability
Wild West is more than chocolate. As a company, we have a growing commitment to raising the bar in social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
Chocolate with a Mission
Giving Back With Every Bite
Our shared rivers, lakes and streams connect us through food, culture and sport. Unfortunately, wild water systems all over the world are under increased stress from damming of free-flowing waters, pollutants, misuse, improper angling, and climate change. Because clean water is essential in creating the clean ingredients like the ones in our chocolate, we believe that it is our duty to advocate for and protect these valuable places as one of our greatest resources. It’s not just that rivers make our lives better. We can’t survive without them.
River Management Society
We've partnered with the River Management Society, the nation's largest network of experienced river professionals. We donate a portion of our profits to their work protecting and preserving North America's wild and scenic rivers. Through communication, outreach, training workshops and events, and the disbursement of funds and resources, RMS supports the individuals who study, protect and manage North America's rivers.
Our first point of sustainability is a radically-transparent cacao supply chain which is focused on quality and direct relationships with our cacao growers. Our cacao is sourced from the highest quality and most ethical suppliers in Peru.
Eliminating reliance on dairy to make chocolate is another way for Wild West to have a positive impact on the planet and our environment.
We implement sustainable packaging measures and are always looking for ways to improve our packaging profile, so it doesn’t add to the growing landfill problem. We use packaging from recycled materials whenever we can.
