Cacao Barry’s Evocao WholeFruit Chocolate, made from 100 per cent cacaofruit, is the first chocolate to be upcycled certified via the Upcycled Food Association.

The UFA certification highlights upcycled ingredients and products procured and produced with surplus food or food-byproducts from manufacturing that use verifiable supply chains and positively impact the environment.

Becoming UFA certified strengthens Cacao Barry’s core values to eliminate food waste while delivering high-quality chocolate, the company said in a news release. This means brands and artisans can help eliminate food waste, a growing problem with over 1.3 billion tons of food wasted every year.

Evacao Wholefruit was launched in June 2021.
