During his testimony, Affleck mentioned the Fremont-based company's commitment to buying DRC-grown cocoa beans. Now, Theo and Affleck have launched a chocolate bar made with cocoa, coffee, and vanilla beans directly sourced from Congolese farmers. A portion of sales go to support Affleck's Eastern Congo Initiative. [EaterWire]
