As a result, I drew some incorrect conclusions and made some assertions there were, in fact, incorrect. I acknowledge that I was in error and I apologize to Dandelion – and to my followers and members – for this mistake. I do my best to report accurately and fully and I did not do my due diligence in this case. I know, now, what went wrong, and will endeavor never to make this same mistake again.
It should come as no surprise that not all reports are created equally.
And, often, so-named transparency, sourcing, or annual reports appear to be carefully crafted to present a narrative that is quite opaquely drawn. It takes some experience and skill to look between the lines behind some reports, to see what’s really going on.
Which is what we’ll be doing in this episode of TheChocolateLife::LIVE, comparing examples from Uncommon Cacao, Taza, Dandelion, and Tony’s Chocolonely, and the first topic I will address is what I think it means to be “transparent.”
