The SunSpire story began in 1979 when Janet Jennings, a fourth-generation chocolatier, set out to create a line of all-natural chocolate products that used no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or additives. Today, SunSpire is one of the nation’s leading providers of all-natural chocolates, as well as the number one producer of all-natural chocolate products in the baking category. SunSpire's commitment to quality is a holistic one that starts with the farmers who grow our cocoa beans and extends to every facet of their lives —from the agricultural methods they use, to the health and education of their families, to the welfare of the communities where they live and work. The cornerstone of this commitment is our Caring for Cocoa Communities program, which is dedicated to providing hands-on support to our cocoa growers by donating tools and resources to increase harvest yields, support their schools, and improve the quality of their crops. We are proud to serve your family the best quality nature can provide.
