When I first found Madecasse online I was just in awe of their fair trade practices and going beyond what they could to ensure building up the Cocoa industry in Madagascar. Experiencing Madagascar first hand int he Peace Corp they learned to live and be friends among the people there. Wanting to go above and beyond most companies they integrated the community into much more than just growing the beans as the illustration below shows.
70% of the worlds cocoa comes from Africa and less 1% of the chocolate is made there!! That amazes me! Madecasse is working to change that for Madagascar where their chocolate bars are made. One of the only fine chocolates made in Africa!
Bean to Bar in Madagascar it reads on each bar of chocolate.
The flavor of the Madagascar chocolate is unique and fine. You can choose a milk chocolate bar with 44% cocoa or get a strong bold bar with 80% cocoa in it. Unique mixes of flavors in the Sea Salt and Nibs or Pepper and Citrus bars. You can taste the earthy flavor and detailed workmanship in each bar. You aren't just eating a chocolate bar, you are investing in a community!
I love companies that give back, that invest in people and products that give them sustainability. Madecasse is a super company for that!
