Helping you succeed
We care about the details
Every choice we make—from the chocolate and hemp we select, to the details of our compensation plan, to our Brand Partner rewards program and even our packaging—comes from a place of careful stewardship for life and land.
We source our chocolate from Valrhona of France. Creators of the world’s best chocolate (and our custom organic blend of 70% cocoa), their entire enterprise is founded on and fueled by a quest for excellence. Committed to creating long-term sustainability and reducing their environmental impact by 50%, Valrhona supports pioneering cocoa agroforestry programs, farms organically, fosters long-term relationships with cocoa-producing communities, complies with employment, environmental and safety laws, supports human rights, fights corruption, pays fair trade wages, and refuses to use child labor—all with an eye to creating a just and sustainable future for cocoa and the planet.
We source our organically-farmed, non-GMO hemp oil from growers here in the US and use only FDA approved facilities for meticulous processing. The hemp oil is third-party tested before we infuse it into our chocolate, and then our finished product is tested again with regard for quality, potency, and purity.
The sweet science of chocolate
What is it about chocolate? Our love affair with chocolate has been undeniable ever since the ancient Aztecs first began cultivating cacao trees. They believed that the cacao seed was a gift bestowed upon them by Quetzalcoatl, their god of wisdom. The Aztecs valued cacao beans more than gold and used them not just in beverages, but as currency, too. Read more…
Hemp—treasured since antiquity
Humans have a long and storied relationship with the hemp plant, just as we do with chocolate, and for good reason. Hemp has been cultivated for a variety of uses: The fibers are used in clothing, rope, textiles and paper, while the seeds are a nutritious high-protein food. The use of hemp can be dated back over 8000 years, making it quite likely to have been the very first plant cultivated for textile fiber. Read more…

LiveKAYA’s insulated packaging ensures that your product comes to you as perfectly as it left our shop. Our chocolate has no wax, preservatives or high-fructose corn syrup, so to make sure it stays cool during transit, we ship it with recycled denim insulation and an innovative low-sweat ice pack. Feel free to reuse the denim insulation in your own innovative project, snip the ice pack and pour the contents in your compost bin, and recycle the container.
Our packaging is 100% recyclable. One-unit orders are shipped in a recyclable plastic sleeve with an ice pack. Larger orders go out in an insulated recyclable cardboard mailer.
We’re proud to announce that the recyclable LiveKAYA chocolate box, designed for us by Design on Edge here in Reno, was showcased amongst 2000 designs and won the 2018 GD USA Graphic Design & Packaging Awards. Bravo!
