ChocoSol chocolate is an open invitation to all, as our cacao is sourced via horizontal trade from Indigenous farmers in Southern Mexico and is organically grown. Our chocolate is made without dairy, gluten, soy, and nuts, and is also vegan. And it’s made right in Toronto at our new location (1131 St. Clair West).
