We owe a great thanks to Johnie Symons, our new webmaster, who undertook the daunting task of resurrecting our old website and turning it into a topnotch informative tribute to our company. Everyone should check it out at www.righteouslyrawchocolate.com.
We're excited to be introducing three great new product lines at the upcoming Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore, Md., Sept. 22-24th.

Our favorite chocolatier, Aaron Brener, has successfully undergone removal of an esophageal cancer. It had been diagnosed as stage 4. He's doing remarkably well and expects to be back at work in a few weeks, hopefully by the time this goes out!
Besides providing our employees 100-percent health insurance coverage, we offer them paid vacation, paid holidays, sick leave, and Worker's Comp. Also, our break room is stocked with food and beverages every week. In return, our team brings us an amazing work ethic, positive vibrations and loyalty to company mission and staff.
Our Righteously Raw chocolate line and our co-packing efforts are continuing to grow and we're more blessed and grateful than ever to be able to provide the world with healthy and delicious food.
Thank you for being our customers,
Blessings and peace,
When we open booth number 2714 in the Organic Pavilion at the Natural Products Expo East Show in Baltimore, Md., Sept. 22-24th we'll be launching three new product lines. These newest confection treats include Raw Chocolate Dipped Macaroons, Rawcholatl (Ancient Aztec Cacao Spice Drink) and three, bite sized, individually wrapped chocolates that come in Divine Mint, Synergy Spice and Pure Dark flavors.
As with all Righteously Raw products, these new delights are produced to our standard high quality and are certified organic, vegan, kosher, gluten free, allergen and nut free and non-GMO. All these exciting gourmet adventures will be featured in the Expo's New Product Showcase as well as at our booth, and we are in the 25-percent off Club for show orders only. If you're in the area, drop by and check us out.
Much of the inspiration for these exciting new products comes from the folks that distribute our wares. For the past couple years, they've told us that their customers keep asking for just such items. We listened and we're very happy to be introducing your requests.
The Chocolate Dipped Macaroons, Rawcholatl beverage and bite size chocolates all are made with a new low glycemic sweetener called coconut palm nectar and are packed with super foods, spices and of course, our famous Righteously Raw chocolate.
Beside their savory taste, the new products are high in cancer fighting anthrocyans, polyphenols and contain powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients and helps promote a healthy immune system.
After the Expo, look for our health oriented products wherever Earth Source Organics' Righteously Raw Bars are sold around the world.

Earth Source Organics supports Organic Consumers Association (OCA) as they step up their efforts to fight Monsanto, label genetically engineered foods, preserve strict organic standards and expand the organic market. Their aim also includes helping reverse global warming before it's too late.
OCA's ongoing efforts include drives to: Stop Monsanto's new sweet corn; Support current pending state laws to label genetically engineered foods, including asking New York, West Virginia, Vermont, Tennessee, Rhode Island, Oregon, North Carolina, Maryland and Illinois state legislators to label GMOs; Demand no free pass for new genetically engineered crops; Demand justice for the victims of Agent Orange; Get Food Inc. out of the Organic Trade Association; Tell the President, VP, Congress & FDA to label GMOs; Abolish Monsanto's new "drought-resistant" corn: Tell USDA, "Don't approve failure;" Ask Trader Joe's to label GMOs; Stop USDA's plans for Monsanto to police itself ; Stop factory farming of "organic" eggs & chicken; Stop genetically modified "humanized" milk cows; and Ask state legislators to label GE salmon, to name a few.
As you can see, OCA, along with other concerned individuals and grassroots organizations, have embarked on a monumental crusade. Each of us owes it to our kids, and their kids, to help their cause in any and every way we can. At the very least, they need our financial help to keep the movement going. You can hop on board here. While you're there, check out all the info their website has to offer. It's a real eye-opener.
