ChocoSoil Traders was originally formed in Mexico in 2004 but the company moved to Toronto in 2006. The company’s mission is to make chocolate and maize foods that are good for the mind, body, and soil.

ChocoSoil is a community-based, urban agriculture project integrating soil making and rooftop container gardening into daily operations at the company’s chocolate production facility. The company has 88 self-watering Caja garden containers on the roof of its facility and grow a range of crops in their ChocoSoil mix. This helps the company to practice urban agriculture and soil regeneration and grow harvest for its products.
