OUR COCOA GROWING REGIONS

Key to making great chocolate is the quality and flavour profile of the cocoa beans you use. We spent 18 months sampling and testing cocoa beans from more than 40 regions around the globe. Beans were evaluated according to the following criteria:

Public feedback

Extent to which the beans demonstrated the richness and diversity of the cocoa bean flavour spectrum

Sustainability

Supply

Chocolate makers sensory evaluation

We decided on six growing regions which also forms the selection for our Single Origin range of chocolate where the richness and diversity of the bean flavours can be experienced.

GROWN AND CRAFTED IN AFRICA

As a chocolate company based in Africa and owned by Africans, most of our chocolate is made with cocoa beans sourced from the Bundibugyo district in Western Uganda. The beans are produced by small scale farmers who are also responsible for harvesting, fermentation and drying. All of the cocoa beans that we get from these farmers are UTZ certified.
