The Change Chocolate with a broken off piece

10 years ago, young Max had an idea.
Now we plant 1 million chocolate trees every year.
How did that happen?

Back in 2012

it all began with a bitter setback.

13-year-old Felix was invited to present in front of 350 chocolate industry bosses. After explaining we trees are so important to flight the climate crisis, he asked: please donate one euro per ton chocolate produced. Not one of them agreed to participate.

"This is shocking" he said as he left the stage in

A few days later, 12-year-old Max had an idea.
Let’s make our own chocolate. A chocolate that
plants trees.

    Where the chocolate trees are planted

    The majority of the trees funded with The Change Chocolate were planted in the Volcano Valley project. The rest in other projects in Mexico and the Philippines.

    Who plants & protects those trees?

    What do these trees look like a few years after planting?

    The Best Chocolate.

    The renowned German consumer watchdog, Stiftung Warentest, declared 'The Change Chocolate' the best among 25 milk chocolates (issue 12/2018) they tested. Lauding, among other factors, it's "very vanilla, caramel, nutty" taste.

    Other manufacturers have service staff who prepare the chocolate on the shelf in a neat way. You can do this job for 'The Change Chocolate'! If the chocolate is sold out, please ask the store manager to reorder immediately and post a photo of the empty shelf on 'The Change Chocolate' Facebook page.

    Chocolate tasting

    The best advertising for a product is when you get to try it out. That's what our 'The Change Chocolate' tasting campaigns are for, which you can do in just a few steps, if you are in Austria or Germany. It is super easy and a lot of fun. So you are part of it:

    1. Choose a shop in our area, which sells the chocolate. Speak with the manager about hosting a chocolate tasting. 
    2. Get in contact with us at least one week in advance:  to let us know the date and time of our event. We will send you chocolate, flyers and posters.
    3. Make sure the manager of the shop remembers the date and time, and let him know that he needs sufficient stock of the chocolate. One Event sold 200 bars of chocolate in 3 hours! 
    4. Publish the event on facebook so your friends can participate. Maybe you can also advertise in the shop. 
    5. On the day: build a stall, prepare your information material, open some chocolate for tasting and talk to customers about the chocolate. If they are interested let them know where the chocolate can be found in the shop.
