When you unwrap a DAGOBA Organic Chocolate bar, it’s a little like opening a book. Beyond the fruity and floral cacao notes, each bar tells a story of time and place. It’s a tale of the farmers who harvest the cacao beans, a whisper from the land where it grows, a taste of the community that brings it to life.
Right now, DAGOBA, which is one of America’s original, organic artisan chocolate brands, is celebrating two important holidays: World Rainforest Day (June 22) and its 16th birthday. To honor those special occasions, we’re sharing our story in a variety of ways as we launch a new look, release new flavors and announce something we’re especially proud of: the One for All Cacao Project, a nonprofit initiative that empowers women living in areas where we source our cacao beans, which come from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms in Peru, Tanzania, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic.
This latest chapter is one that’s made possible through Hershey, which has supported DAGOBA in expanding in new directions—including this deep commitment to corporate social responsibility—while preserving the qualities that distinguish it among other artisan chocolates.

If you know DAGOBA, then you probably know our motto: “Tastes Good, Does Good.” Over the last 15 years, DAGOBA has stayed true to its original mission to source unique chocolate and other ingredients with respect to the sustainability of the planet and individual communities. DAGOBA organic chocolate bars are made from USDA certified organic cacao beans which come, as mentioned, from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms along with Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients. Now, we’re reaching even further to empower women in those cacao communities.
Today, DAGOBA is expanding nationally so it’s easy for customers to find—just visit your local Target. There, you’ll discover four new bars, some of which include new flavor infusions of fruits, herbs
