Why We Are K’UL

The word K’UL is Mayan for “the energy and interconnectivity between all living things.” This word encapsulates everything we are trying to do. The change to K’UL has also allowed us to fulfill our commitment to the environment by reducing one more layer of material. We are making bold moves with this new packaging change. We’re introducing a simple, yet radical concept for craft chocolate; packaging that protects your chocolate and conveniently reseals to make your world just a little easier. In the next year, we’re making a push to move to fully sustainable, 100% compostable packaging. So that’s less packaging and impact on the planet while staying 100% focused on the people that live here.

K’UL continues to carry on the mission to change the world through chocolate by elevating women, protecting children, and fighting slave labor. We have an unwavering commitment to producing ethically sourced, direct-trade, hand-crafted, small-batch bean to bar chocolate that uses only organic and Non-GMO ingredients.

We also made another bold move by featuring the women we work with on the front of our packaging. We’ve continuously received requests over the years to highlight them by sharing their story more prominently. We believe that telling the human story of chocolate is incredibly essential. There is an interconnectivity between grower, processor, manufacturer, and consumer, it’s symbiotic and critical that everyone is treated fairly and with dignity. Ultimately, we want our customers to feel confident that their purchases make a positive impact on the world we live in.

We currently source cacao and work with producers in two countries; the Dominican Republic and Peru. In addition to our partnerships in these countries, we are looking to other origins such as Honduras, Ghana and Vietnam.

We have a facility with over 4,000 sq. ft. of organic chocolate production located in the heart of Bellingham, WA. The factory includes a full bean to bar processing line that includes roasting, winnowing, pre-refining, refining and conching. It also included an automated molding system that can produce up to 1.25 million chocolate bars per year. In addition to production and packaging, we are also offering the capability of providing private label manufacturing to select partners. 

We will soon be opening the facility to tours so that people will be able to learn about the steps and processes involved in making bean to bar chocolate. We are thrilled to expand our capabilities and more than proud to be a part of the community by providing employment and supporting local organizations through shared partnerships.

We will always have found memories of what we’ve created and look forward sharing more K’UL developments in the future with you.
