We are an Australian social enterprise using the world's favourite food to fight hunger!
Hi, I'm Emma — a chocolate maker on a mission to do something about global poverty. I believe the one-for-one social enterprise model is the best way to run the gauntlet of donor fatigue and the disconnect between the developed world and those that need our help.
That's why we give the everyday consumer the opportunity to impact those in need around the globe — simply by enjoying delicious chocolate. One bar for you = one meal for a child living in poverty.
I was inspired to start a social enterprise after volunteering in the Philippines in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan, the 2013 disaster that saw 20,000 perish. I saw the enormous impact food relief had on the affected communities’ children and I continued to raise funds for the programs after returning home.
That is why That Chocolate Movement's first feeding project will be in the Philippines, the very place the seed was planted three years ago. We already have a fabulous network of friends on the ground in Tacloban and the framework is already in place. We love that we can be 110% confident that every dollar sent to our friends will go directly into hungry bellies —and none of it will be sucked up in admin fees or red tape.
Once we build up the experience and knowhow through our first project, we plan to take the fight to other vulnerable areas around the globe. We believe we can change the world with a chocolate bar but we need legends like YOU!
Cool! But tell us more about the choccy!

But wait, THERE'S MORE! Our chocolate is ALSO enriched with prebiotics and probiotics — more than 1 billion of your belly's besties in every bar. We are working with global probiotic innovators, Ganeden, to bring the first confectionary to Australia and New Zealand containing GanedenBC30, a ground-breaking highly stable probiotic strain that remains viable through processing, shelf life and the low pH of stomach acid.

We've solved a personal problem for you — chocolate you don't have to feel guilty about scoffing — so we can battle a much more important problem: global hunger.
✨ This is Chocolate you can feel REALLY GOOD about eating ✨
We want to create more than just a chocolate company. We want to start a movement — one that shows the everyday consumer how easy it can be to make a positive impact on the world around them. That's why rather than investors, we want YOU to be a part of our story from the very beginning.
I have been bootstrapping this dream for the past year and I need more capital now to purchase the last of the 'major production' machinery, to hire some help and to get the custom-made Bunyip moulds designed and tooled with our European mould partners. Thank you so much for your involvement and your support. Here's our timeline:

Risks and challenges
In terms of recipe and brand development — the work is already done.
We have already fostered healthy relationships with suppliers and feel confident they can meet our needs in a timely manner.
The only potential challenge we can identify is simply the length of time it will take for our European mould producers to complete and ship the Happy Belly Bunyip Moulds. We have been advised production and delivery may take up to 8 weeks.
Another challenge we may face is accelerated growth. We would resolve this issue by employing additional staff and adding a second stone-grinder. Waiting on the delivery of new machinery would limit our production ability for a short period of time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
