Marich Confectionery Company, the second generation Central Coast California based candy maker behind Marich® Chocolates, is pleased to announce their commitment to Fair Trade practices and will showcase a fresh new look at the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York, June 26th – 28th, booth #2160.
The certification of all packaged flavors is produced in partnership with Fair Trade USA. The Fair Trade Certified™ Cocoa seal will appear on retail branded packages in 2016. “Moving to Fair Trade is important to us as individuals and an important aspect of our business for the future” says Brad van Dam, CEO and President of Marich. “Buying Fair Trade ensures that in addition to getting quality products every purchase helps the people who grow our cocoa to receive higher returns for their hard work. In fact, every purchase of Marich Chocolates can help farmers work in safer conditions and earn more money to invest in their communities and improving the lives of their families while also supporting sustainable growing practices.”
Marich is also showcasing its updated packaging look across single serve packaging as well as extending flavors in a line of pouch packaged items to compliment the single serve variety allowing consumers the option for a more shareable size. The gable items will remain in its giftable packaging. “Our collection of handcrafted chocolates is more than just nice to look at” declares Deborah Holt, CMO of Marich. “We’ve added an array of fun, vibrant colors and easy to identify flavor callouts for the chocolate loving consumer. Marich has never been so exciting – inside or out!”
