What Brand is Behind Costco's Chocolate-Covered Nuts?
In 2013, Costco Connection magazine revealed that Kirkland's chocolate-covered almonds are produced by the Blommer Chocolate Company.
Costco collaborated with Blommer to establish sustainable cocoa sourcing practices from the Ivory Coast, involving 15 cocoa bean farming cooperatives and over 5,000 farmers.
Blommer Chocolate is the largest manufacturer of chocolate and cocoa products in North America, including chocolate-covered nuts, chocolate liqueur, and cocoa butter.
The company's efforts in sustainable processing earned international recognition and the "Sustainable Standard-Setter" title from the Rainforest Alliance.
Working closely with over 50,000 cocoa farmers worldwide, Blommer Chocolate improved business practices and increased production rates.
