Mott Green of Grenada Chocolate Company

Mott Green of Grenada Chocolate Company

We kick off our season of joint Seventypercent.com and Melt Chocolates growing country chocolate tastings with an old friend and pioneer of growing country chocolate, Mott Green.

Mott is the chocolate maker and inspiration behind the Grenada Chocolate Company, which is probably the only chocolate maker actually sited on a cacao farm, and the only one powered purely by solar energy!

The company is at the heart of an organic certified cooperative, and those fine Grenadan beans are turned into chocolate fully produced and finished on site in Grenada.

Mott will be telling us about his latest improvements and the development of the local cooperative and how Grenada Chocolate is helping farmers get a better deal for their cacao – a project that goes beyond the aspirations of Fair Trade.

Also during the event, Martin Christy will introduce fine chocolate and explain a little about the history of cacao in the Caribbean. There will be the chance to taste the latest Grenada Chocolate, as well as specially prepared truffles made with Grenada Chocolate by Melt, accompanied by a glass of wine.
