Madecasse Chocolate & Vanilla
Production and Manufacturing
We are focused on two things:
1) Most chocolate on the shelf has the same, bland taste. It’s not bad, after all it is chocolate. However, we think you deserve something with real flavor and we’re on a mission to make that happen. We use heirloom cocoa, the Earth’s original variety, and you can taste the difference.
(2) There is a lack of transparency in the chocolate industry, due to the thousands of miles and layers of middlemen that separate the farmers growing cocoa from the people eating chocolate (you). We’ve integrated ourselves into some of the poorest communities and most challenging work environments in the world, to buy cocoa directly from farmers. Farmers earn more for their cocoa, and you get a better bar of chocolate.
Our journey started as Peace Corps Volunteers in Madagascar. We fell in love with the country and people and wanted to do more, so we started making chocolate using heirloom cocoa from Madagascar. Since then we’ve learned a lot about the industry and what it takes for real change to happen. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, but the real work is just getting started.
