A good chocolate journey

“Once we discovered the cocoa beans of the vibrant Bundibugyo region in Uganda, we began to realize the potential of the journey we had embarked upon. It became our mission to create a chocolate brand true to its origin and the exotic taste of Africa.”

OUR PROMISE

We know that chocolate is a treat. It’s not a health food but that doesn’t mean it should contain unhealthy elements. We do not add any artificial flavours, colourants, stabilisers or preservatives and we do not use hydrogenated vegetable oils. We use unrefined, brown sugar and our products are all naturally gluten free. So treat yourself with a clear conscience.

ETHICALLY SOURCED

We source all of our ingredients ethically, mindful of doing no harm to people, animals or the environment. Our cocoa beans are sourced from Uganda and are UTZ Certified, meaning we support sustainable cocoa farming. Because we understand the importance of the rainforests to the health of our planet we do not use palm oil in any of our products.

GROWN IN AFRICA

We’re proud to say that our chocolate is 100% authentically sourced in Africa by Africans; the majority of which is made from the vibrant cocoa bean sourced from the spirited Bundibugyo district in beautiful Western Uganda, produced by small-scale farmers also responsible for the harvesting, fermentation and drying.

A JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY

Throughout our quest to unlock the secrets of good chocolate we were inventive, working with what we had and learning along the way. Once we discovered the quality of Africa's resources (after much traveling and searching) in the beautiful tropical Bundibugyo region of Uganda, we were able to develop our range of chocolates. 


 We now 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.
