Like craft beer, craft condiments, and other craft foods, the craft chocolate movement is on the rise… and for good reason. The modern consumer doesn’t just want quality products, they want to know where their products are coming from and what impact these products have on the environment and the greater good. Luckily, smart consumers can rest easy when it comes to sustainably sourced artisanal chocolate. Unlike other plantation crops such as palm and soy, cacao plants actually contribute to the health of the rainforest and help local communities thrive. A savory treat that helps people and the planet? It’s the ultimate win-win. SETTING THE BAR: A CRAFT CHOCOLATE ORIGIN STORY follows a group of craft chocolate artisans through the Peruvian Amazon on their quest to find the perfect beans and create meaningful relationships with the people who grow them. A mouth-wateringly informative documentary that takes viewers on an in-depth chocolate journey from bean to bar, SETTING THE BAR: A CRAFT CHOCOLATE ORIGIN STORY is the perfect film for chocolate lovers, adventurers, and environmentalists alike.
