Brand Story

Read More

Theo was founded in 2005 by Joe Whinney and Jeff Fairhall to invite people to discover a better world through chocolate. Whinney had experience supplying organic cocoa beans to the United States and he wanted to make a difference in farming communities he met. Whinney moved to Seattle and over two years developed the branding and built the factory where Theo Chocolate is made today.
