We strive at SoChatti to create a sustainable supply chain for the benefit of future generations.
At SoChatti, every part of our raw ingredients supply chain may be useful. In fall 2020, SoChatti will be launching a cacao mulch program, where winnowed chaff (shells and small nibs) from chocolate manufacturing may be used to enrich your gardens and bring the fresh aroma of chocolate to your outdoors.
SoChatti Chaff is flash roasted and carefully sorted during the winnowing process, and returned to the original burlap bags for re-use.
Stay tuned, and send us an email if you would like to receive additional details!
SoChatti Pouch Sustainability
