About Us

At Our Core, We Strive for Total Transparency & Ethical Business Practices

 

Transforming the Chocolate Industry

Since 2020 

That’s right! We’re brand new. 

What makes us unique is that from day one, we have advocated sustainability, healthy eating, and ethical business practices. We refuse to cut corners to increase our profits, and aim for absolute transparency throughout the company and our partnerships. 

Everything we do is with intention and thoughtfulness. 

Our founder and head chocolatier, Emma, has cultivated a life-long passion for the culinary arts. Having lived in Vermont for most of her life, she deeply values holistic eating and sustainability. She sees a great need for more quality in the food industry– as too often products are filled with additives and preservatives that should never be put in your body.  

We’re a local business, and Vermont is a wonderful place to build relationships with other small producers and companies. We source local foods as much as possible, which reflects mostly within all the dairy and maple products we use in our confections.

We employ direct-trade practices for sourcing food. When we cannot buy local food, we make sure that the source is sustainable and ethical. 

We’re a small, handcrafted, chocolate company. Our small-scale model allows us to put a lot of love and care into every bite of sweetness created in our kitchen.

We offer two lines of products

The confections: artisan chocolates and candies. They are made from ethically-sourced ingredients in a loving environment that follows strict sanitary guidance.

CBD infused products: We source pure hemp-derived CBD extracts from our partners at X-Tract Vermont and offer the following products:

A Note From Our Chocolatier

Our chocolatier and Founder, Emma Rose, has cultivated a life-long passion for the culinary arts. Having lived in Vermont for most of her life, she deeply values healthy eating and sustainability. She sees a great need for more quality in the food industry, as too often products are filled with additives and preservatives that should never be put in your body.

It was her first encounter with fine Belgium confections that got her hooked on making chocolates. From the sophisticated, adorable look of these confections, to the incredible flavors and textures when taking a bite…she simply found the experience so out of this world that she decided to turn this new-found obsession into her career.

Rosie’s Confections offers something different than the rest. Something wholesome and also absolutely delicious. A chocolate that is sure to satisfy your need for the sweet, crunchy, creaminess we all love…without the additives and preservatives. Organic, local, GMO-free and direct-trade ingredients are at the core of Rosie’s Confections. Emma strongly emphasize sustainability and transparency in all that she does. High quality cocoa makes us feel good when we eat it, and CBD improves our overall balance and health to help us feel great every day.

Integrity of product = peace of mind.

Our chocolates and candies are meant to be an indulgence that leave you with no guilt.

Quality. Taste. Love. Art. Passion.

This is Emma’s promise to you.

From Inspiration & Heartbreak, to Prosperity

Paul Rose was Emma Rose’s father and mentor. Together they ventured into the cannabis industry back in 2018, with a desire to be part of the amazing revolution that was taking place, de-stigmatizing the incredible healing plant–cannabis. Throughout their business venture, Paul instilled in Emma, the drive and knowledge to start her own entrepreneurial journey with a solid mindset. 

Through the many obstacles they faced building a business in CBD, Paul did not give up on his dream for a single day. He was a force of nature, always willing to inspire and empower the ones around him.

The Rose family lost Paul to cancer in December 2019.

After losing Paul, the Rose family embarked on a journey to realize his dream of building an amazing family-run, CBD business.

 

We started a CBD edibles company, with clean, infused products. Rosie’s Confection is the outcome of a strong desire to create a guilt-free indulgence, an intention for creative, artisan confections, and a deep-rooted love for the use of cannabis and its connection to the human body.

Rosie’s Confections was born amidst the craziness of a global pandemic. Forced to find other ways of selling products than supplying stores and restaurants/cafes, we’ve streamlined our focus via-online first. 

We are grateful to have also had the opportunity to participate in the Farmer’s markets of Vermont, and establish ourselves with our local community as well as make enough sales to hold us over the summer months. With the end of the market season, we are redirecting our online efforts to building relationships with local stores and retailers.

Recently, we have realigned our business to focus on high-quality, artisanal chocolates and candies made with clean ingredients and social responsibility. 

We decided to reorient ourselves in order to magnify our ability to grow and have a significant impact on both the chocolate and cannabis industry as separate commodities. We hope to lead the way by example in how a sustainable, honest, and game changing business should look like and run, and change the world for the better. 

You might think we have wild dreams but that  is the spice that makes life beautiful.

Owned by Women, Run by Women

 Three generations of badass women make up the framework of Rosie’s Confections. The Rose family has a rich & dynamic history of entrepreneurship, art, hard-work, and a deep-rooted passion for learning and growth.

Three generations are coming together and creating a company built on the wisdom of the past, and a vision for a better future.

Our Mission

There is a dire need for better and more sustainable practices in the chocolate and food industries. More than just creating a product that tastes good and feels great in your body, we aim at offering guilt-free indulgence. We are conscientious of where we source our ingredients and the effect it has on all the lives involved in their supply chain. 

Our Vision

Rosie’s sees a future where the simple act of purchasing a product, can serve as a way to advocate for a better world. Where transparency and corporate social responsibility is an element consumers demand from their food sources, and the technology for businesses to provide that is efficient, affordable, and easy to implement. We promise to prioritize these factors in the groundwork of our practice. 

Our Core Values

Thoughtfulness – Everything we do aligns with our values.

Sustainability – Traditional methods of food cultivation (typically human physical labor) can lose sight of sustainability once the demand is too large. In order to adapt to modern-day, consumer demands, we must use science and sustainable forms of technology that can ensure quality in final products. It is not okay that behind any of our food there is child labor or an ever-growing slave trade. Yet, this is how rising demands are met, more times than not. We want to change that.

Fair wages – Everyone in the supply chain needs to get paid for their work. It’s not okay for large, trading companies to rake in huge amounts of profit at the cost of the livelihoods of farmers who are the ones doing the real work. At Rosie’s Confections, we make sure direct-trade practices are used by all our sources of ingredients and materials we use.

Quality of life – starts at the workplace. We believe everyone can thrive when doing work they love. We empower self-care and passion because we believe it is the secret recipe for joy, and sincere work. All our products are made with the wellbeing of our customers in mind. Indulging in the novel food that is chocolate does not have to come at the cost of your health, so we use only clean, quality ingredients! 

It’s very hard today to know whether or not a food is ethically sourced with all the misleading labels like “natural” or “earth friendly” to name a few. We are completely transparent with our ingredients and values, and we hope this will establish trust and give peace of mind to our customers.  

We know you care about the planet, human life, and spreading joy.

We do too!
