In 2010, Bissinger’s introduced the Rainforest Collection, which is highly esteemed for its exceptional taste and health-friendly, earth-friendly ingredients. This line is made with cocoa from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms, helping to conserve biodiversity and improve the well-being of farmers, their families and our planet. The Rainforest Alliance promotes respect and concern for natural environments, wildlife, farm families and local communities.
RESPONSIBLE LABOR PRACTICES IN COCOA FARMING
Bissinger’s chocolate suppliers follow the principles of the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF). The chocolate and cocoa industry is working to improve the well-being of children and adults on cocoa farms worldwide. This work includes a commitment to ensuring that cocoa is farmed in a responsible manner.
The industry is working with West African governments, NGOs and labor experts to design and implement "certification" for cocoa farming labor practices. The program is part of a broader ongoing effort to promote economic and social development in cocoa farming communities.
Bissinger's is excited to be a part of the global effort to preserve the earth's natural resources by printing our catalogs and packaging on FSC certified paper with soy inks. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organization that brings people together to find solutions which promote responsible stewardship of the world’s forests. Its product label allows consumers worldwide to recognize products that support the growth of responsible forest management worldwide.
(Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points)
We are proud to have earned this certification. HACCP is important because it helps reduce potential hazards in food production. By minimizing major food risks, such as microbiological, chemical and physical contaminants, our industry can assure consumers that products are as safe as science and technology allow. By reducing food-borne hazards, public health protection is strengthened.
For more than 35 years, we have maintained loyal customers who have been instrumental in growing our national catalog business. For distribution, Bissinger’s is centrally located. For your convenience, we direct-ship our chocolates 12 months per year nationwide at a delivered price.
