In 2006 Audrey Darrow, having just gone through radical surgery, radiation and chemotherapy for breast cancer, was working at a health food store in San Diego to get the employee discount. Why? So she could afford the healthy foods she loved and believed would help keep her cancer-free. Why were all the organic, healthy, raw products she was purchasing so prohibitively expensive, she wondered? Why shouldn’t everyone be able to afford to eat this way? The wheels started turning and in 2007 Righteously Raw as a concept was born: healthy, delicious food at an affordable price, The Way Chocolate Ought To Be™.
Both our ingredients and clean energy production facility are certified Organic, Non-GMO, Vegan, Kosher, Gluten-Free. Additionally, we are allergen-friendly and use no refined sugars because we want to meet the needs of those consumers that want a healthy product but may have specific dietary restrictions. We want everyone to be able to enjoy Righteously Raw, regardless of restriction!
There are a lot of chocolate companies out there, but we truly believe that Righteously Raw stands apart from the others. We are meticulous when sourcing and producing our chocolate and temper under 118 degrees to preserve as many vital nutrients as possible in the finished product. We believe this gives our customers the most nutritionally sound product possible with an amazing depth of flavor!
While many manufacturing companies out there may do the bare minimum, we believe that every one of our employees is vital to our company’s success. We offer each employee fully paid health insurance, 401k matching, vacation and sick pay, a stocked lunchroom, and more because we know that when we give, our employees return our commitment to them in kind.
Audrey’s daughter, Jaymie, passed away in 2008 and Audrey, instead of falling to negativity, continues to draw on her energy as fuel to keep Righteously Raw moving forward. We want to share our love for food with the world.
As the years have gone by we’ve hit many milestones: outgrown two facilities, created awesome new products to bolster to our line, and added new people to our growing family. We continue to move forward with the same integrity and purpose we’ve had since day 1: striving to deliver the best, most affordable product with the finest ingredients into the hands of customers who value it most. We hope that our passion for what we do shines through each and every time you unwrap a Righteously Raw Chocolate product.
