A sweetriot is a joyful celebration of culture, diversity, and understanding — it is the opposite of a civil riot, which is dangerous, violent, and oppressing. Join us!
News & Events
Our latest news can always be found at http://blog.sweetriot.com/ We look forward to rioting with you!
sweetriot was launched in the Fall of 2005 and is a new and growing company. Our first original product line is all-natural, chocolate covered cacao nibs sourced directly in Latin America and sold in recycleable, reusable tins which feature artwork from emerging artists.
We view social responsibility in 3 key areas: Our Product. Our People. Our Partnerships.
Our Product. First of all, we consider what products we are creating. Are they good for the world....are they healthy...are they natural and fairly traded? Is the sourcing ethical? We worked very hard to find a partner in South America with a strong track record of social responsibility. Plus, we searched for a product - cacao - which comes from the most healthy & magical fruit in the world. It is a slow not fast food and we're proud of that.
We are committed to building a workplace, which is empowered, team-oriented, positive, and service oriented. On the inside of our company, we need to be responsible in order to serve our partners and rioters effectively. We create fair HR practices such as a health care stipend even though we are a tiny company and work on work-life balance issues and making sweetriot a wonderful place to work. Once again, we are not perfect, but we try our best.
Our Partnerships. Lastly, of course, we love to support non-profits who have similar values and ideals to sweetriot. We especially focus on organizations that celebrate culture and diversity and young people. Our partnerships take many forms but usually involve giving the organization cacao for their special events and also sending speakers and/or people to help them at events.
sweetriot believes in partnering with organizations, which also celebrate young people and culture and diversity. Some of these organizations are: AIESEC, GenArt, and Net Impact.
