Traceability is the physical map of the trading process from grower to chocolate maker. When this map is complete and honest, it can empower and celebrate each actor in the value chain. The map traces the physical journey a bean takes from the farmer to the end chocolate product.
Traceability is important because it supports quality, safety, and consistency, which are all essential to fine chocolate making.
The importance of connection and information exchange and feedback is only possible when actors are connected. The interconnectedness of the fine chocolate ecosystem gives the consumer information to make a well-informed purchase.
