Courage Chocolate for an Inclusive Valentine 2020

Courage Chocolate is the outcome of many months of capacity development of young women migrants arriving in Sicily to start a new chapter in their lives as they arrive in a region with the richest concentration of biodiversity in Europe, in terms of medicinal and aromatic herbs.

Their learning journey starts with Mediterranean herb identification followed by chocolate making from tree to bar, including the transformation of the cacao beans into liquor, butter, powder and chocolate. With the mentoring support of a Sicilian master baker, the young women have developed six unique chocolate recipes sold under the brand they themselves developed Courage Chocolate.

Courage Chocolate has been awarded the TuttoFood Milano Prize in 2019 and was sold out during LUSH Manchester Festival, attracting great interest from the engaged LUSH public, eager to know where to source more.
