You can go here to find more info on Vegan Nocciolata Organic Hazelnut & Cocoa Spread.
And if you’re interested in what it means for products to be marked as “cruelty-free” and “vegan” that include non-exploited human labor, you can check out Food Empowerment Project. They engage in food justice and farmworker rights with a vegan framework and have an excellent campaign that asks companies to source their cocoa ethically. I am hoping that Rigoni di Asiago does source their cocoa under non-cruel conditions; maybe they just didn’t label it yet.
UPDATE July 26 2016: Rigoni di Asiago contacted me and they said that they indeed use a Fair Trade source of cocoa. I asked them if they can update their labels to reflect this in the near future!
