Our Good Chocolate Journey is far from over. We currently create and sell our chocolate, ice cream and freshly roasted single estate coffee at our studio at the Spice Route in Paarl, a historic Cape Dutch estate and key attraction in the heart of South Africa’s Cape Winelands. Our full range of UTZ Certified, uniquely African chocolate flavors is also sold online and through a major upmarket grocery chain in South Africa.
In the same way as we’ve grown our range of chocolates and flavors we have nurtrured a partnership with Drakenstein APD, a recognized organization in the Western Cape that empowers disabled people, helping them earn a living. As one of their community upliftment projects, they use our jute cocoa and coffee bean bags to create beautiful, fashionable products, from pencil cases and shoulder bags to the colourful vests and aprons our tasting room staff wear. Being involved with this wonderful organization is a privilege for us.
We have now reached a point in our journey where our passion for Africa and our pride in being able to share the quality, vibrancy and uniqueness of this vast continent is driving us to take our chocolate flavors to the USA. Bringing our ethically sourced and consciously created African chocolate to you is a big next step and we invite you to support us as we launch our Kickstarter campaign. Pledges comprising special packs of our products are available from as little as $13. Visit our Kickstarter page to join us on our Good Chocolate Journey.
Our values, and the respect we have for both people and planet ensure that when you buy De Villiers Chocolate, you are helping all of us in Africa have better lives.
