NOTHING LIKE CHOCOLATE explores the possibilities of sustainable economies and resilience, telling the powerful story of Mott Green and the Grenada Chocolate Company he founded, a farmers’ and workers’ cooperative. This tree-to-bar factory, claimed to be the smallest in the world, turns out luscious creations that are organic and ethical.
In a world saturated with industrial chocolate–often made with cocoa harvested by exploited child labor–this solar-powered workers’ co-op provides a viable model for creating sustainable communities in the global South and beyond.
