Whistler Chocolate was founded in November 2006 by adventure and chocolate loving Whistlerites. The goal was to combine our love of chocolate with our love for the Whistler lifestyle. We wanted to provide good quality organic chocolate for Whistler visitors and residents alike and at the same time infusing the fun and joyful lifestyle of Whistler in our packaging. And it worked! Whistler Chocolate has now become a favourite among the Whistler folks and very popular as a souvenir/gift with Whistler visitors.
Always seeking to enhance our product, we launched in May 2009 a new eco-friendly packaging. The inner wrap is now 100% compostable and made out of wood fibre. It can be disposed of in a home or local composter. Our box is 100% recyclable and is made from 35-75% post consumer waste - so as along as you eat the chocolate (we know you will) there is absolutely no waste!
On December 2012 our chocolate bars made history and rocketed into space to the International Space Station!!. Our chocolate bars were part of the menu for astronauts working on the International Space Station.
