Whatever brings you joy in business, write it down, and practice that mission each and every day. 

Curt Vander Meer, CEO of Endangered Species Chocolate (ESC), is the leader behind the financial success of the company, but also the driving force behind their mission-oriented approach.

This week we’re talking with Curt about the sustainable projects and missions ESC practices, and of course about their delicious products. With a goal to donate $1 million each year, Curt shares behinds-the-scenes information on how each chocolate bar is created with the consumer in mind. Listen to learn more about CSR means to Curt, and where you can find ESC products to start making an impact both on sustainability and your taste buds.
