Loving Earth is a Melbourne based company dedicated to sourcing and manufacturing the highest quality organic, fair trade and wild crafted functional foods available, including delicious raw chocolate and cacao products. Loving Earth supports the conscious consumer movement by sourcing products that are produced according to specific environmental and social standards.
The Loving Earth story began in 2007 when founders Scott Fry and Martha Butler returned to Melbourne from Mexico, bringing with them the ingredients to create their very first chocolate bars. Their apartment was the HQ, with night shift at a local bakery the manufacturing site. From day one the demand for Loving Earth raw chocolate was far greater than the production capacity, and it wasn’t long before the business started to expand.
