The Beginning of Emerald Sky
Our founder, Josh Taylor, started Emerald Sky in 2018 out of his home kitchen in San Francisco. With over 30 years of experience crafting natural confections and a love for cannabis (since his college days), he invented the first Infused Licorice ever. His vision was to bring people something brand new, extremely delicious, and reliably dosed. With the cooperation, expertise, and endless devotion of Emerald Sky co-founder Nathan Wyss, this vision came true. Soon, the two candy-makers found a unique technological solution for accurate dosage control and went about making Emerald Sky one of California’s most diversified brands of edibles.
A Lifetime in the Making
In 1991, Josh introduced the first chocolate bar into Whole Foods Market—and in 1993 created the first ever made-in-America organic chocolate bars. He also became a pioneer of vegan chocolate bars, with contemporary combos such as Organic Vegan Green Tea White Chocolate with Puffed Basmati Rice and Vegan Dark Hazelnut Crunch. He has continued his innovative love for candy, expanding the Emerald Sky line to Gummies, Hard Fruit Drops, Peanut Butter Cups, and now Crème Filled Chocolate Cookies!
