Green & Blacks Organic Chocolate
Green and Blacks Organic Chocolate is a chocolate made with 70% or 85% cocoa solids. Its products are sold under the Fairtrade certification.
They have a large range of products, many specifically marketed for cooking.
The name Green and Blacks was derived not from any founders' surnames, but from a wordplay — "Green" standing for the environmental concerns of the founders, and "Black" for the high cocoa solids chocolate they wished to provide.
In May 2005, Cadbury Schweppes (now Cadbury plc) bought Green & Black's for an undisclosed sum, estimated to be around £20m. Cadbury pledged to run the company as a separate business.
On January 19, 2010, Cadbury Schweppes was bought by Kraft Foods.
