Independent research organization "HowGood" provides a ratings system for sustainable and socially conscious food items. They recently awarded Organic Living Superfoods with their "Best of the World" identification, reserved for companies and individuals who bring transparency to the food industry and for products that are considered some of the best, most sustainable food products on the market. Organic Living Superfoods was in the top 5% out of 170,000 food products rated.

Alexander Gillett and his brother, Arthur, started their HowGood rating system in 2007 out of concern for the environment. They knew that consumers who wanted to choose the best quality food from ethical sources did not have all the info they needed in order to make an informed choice. Gillett said, "We incorporate factors within our ratings that are overlooked and rarely addressed by the industry, such as animal husbandry, a company's conduct over time, sourcing standards and up to 60 other indicators."

In additional to nutritional factors, some of those 60 indicators which are calculated include where ingredients are sourced from, how the company treats employees and how the company deals with hazardous waste disposal. All this adds up to a rating, accessible on the internet or via ap on the Apple App store or the Android App store.

A non-gmo, naturally sugar-free, low glycemic, high fiber delicious chocolate that you can use for weight loss? Hell froze over and we all just died and went to heaven! We joke about the health benefits of chocolate, but who knew it could actually be true? And this cocoa is even sourced from a consortium of growers in compliance with ethical treatment of their workers.

ChocoPerfection creator, Mary Jo Kringas, weighed 300 lbs and had struggled with her weight for over 30 years. She developed her chocolate in 2003 to help her with weight loss, and lost 75 lbs in one year without struggling: it was pain-free, guilt-free, long-term weight loss! Now she's looking super svelt after losing over 200 lbs!
