Providing mind, body, and soul with the nourishment it needs to be healthy without chemicals or synthetic means.
Deep in the mountains of southeastern British Columbia, a passionate woman is making and celebrating heart-opening nutritious and delicious chocolate surrounded by cedar trees, elk and white swans. Yup, white swans.
Beth Campbell is creating small-batch chocolate magic from her rural home in the Kootenays using superfoods, alternative sweeteners (such as coconut sugar) and mindfully-sourced and fairly-traded cacao. Oh and there’s definitely some serious love mixed in there too.
Beth was drawn into the world of small-batch artisan chocolate after getting frustrated about the lack of options on local store shelves. Although she always had a passion for cooking and baking, she had never made chocolate before. She threw caution to the wind, bought some molds and jumped right into what would become a life-changing endeavor.
She decided to combine her love of alchemy, medicinal ingredients and flavor combinations to bring you chocolate that’s real. Beth also found a way to accelerate the benefits of this magical superfood. She sees cacao as the ultimate delivery vehicle of medicinal substances into the body and she celebrates it.
Beth’s recipes are so unique, her creations so flavorful…that her chocolate is featured in stores across southeastern British Columbia.
Not only is she empowering people to make healthier chocolate choices at the till, Beth is determined to bring awareness to the issues involved in the chocolate industry — including slavery and inadequate working conditions for cacao farmers. Her goal is to use the abundance she has been blessed with to make a difference in the chocolate industry, and the farmers and consumers connected to it.
