Joe Whinney and Debra Music with Hanson Hosein
Theo, Forging a New Chocolate Frontier

Whinney and Music

THUMB_Hanson HoseinSeattle-based Theo Chocolate–the first organic and Fair Trade chocolate factory in the United States–is committed to ethical, sustainable (and delicious) chocolate-making. Founders Joe Whinney and Debra Music set out to create change through their business model–“setting the standards for sustainability in a world that desperately needs ethical agriculture” (Jane Goodall). Their newly-released cookbook Theo Chocolate is an inside look at their favorite recipes and the social justice principles that drive the organization. They’ll appear in conversation with UW’s Hanson Hosein (Director of the Communication Leadership program) for a discussion of the principles that drive the company, insight into what makes them so successful, and share a few of their favorite recipes. In case the program makes your mouth water, there’ll be a small chocolate tasting after the discussion.
