With its mission to 'save the world through silliness and chocolate,' Brooklyn's FINE & RAW is changing the way New Yorkers think about chocolate. Instead of brightly colored treats produced in massive quantities, this upscale chocolate shop sells small-batch confections that not only taste great, but are also good for the planet.

FINE & RAW was started by Daniel Sklaar, who began making small-batch chocolates in his Brooklyn loft. Sklaar eventually opened an urban chocolate factory in the heart of Bushwick, selling artisan treats made from conscious ingredients that do no harm humans or the planet. FINE & RAW also uses a unique, low-heat technique that preserves the flavor and vitality of raw chocolate for an intense flavor profile. The result is a collection of mouth-watering confections, butters and spreads that will make any chocoholic drool.

For those attending Trend Hunter’s New York innovation conference, this urban chocolate factory is the perfect place to explore the artisan food movement.
