The Chocolarder says

African chocolate has a dark history. That is why projects in the Virunga National Park, the oldest in Africa, are so important. In 2016 the Femmes de Virunga project was launched, the first ever female-led cacao cooperative in the world, and in one of the most dangerous places to be a woman. The project educates and supports these women, enabling them to provide for and support their families. Since the project started in 2016 more than a quarter of a million cacao trees have been planted and there are over 1500 women farmers in the cooperative.

Meet The Chocolarder

Cornwall

Chocolarder was formed in 2012 when I decided that making chocolate might be a fun way to spend my days. Having dedicated several years to learning and working in commercial kitchens as a pastry chef, I began experimenting happily in my own kitchen, making small batches from raw beans and getting intimate with the processes of roasting, grinding and alchemizing to produce fine chocolate from scratch. My intention was to create a product based on the principles that have always been at the heart of great food – unadulterated sensory enjoyment without compromise. No shortcuts, preservatives, bulking agents, substitutions or artificial shenanigans. Just the real deal, right from the bean to the bar. This is a genuine commitment to ethical transparency that extends to every aspect of the business. We source direct from the farmers themselves – by establishing a direct channel from the farm to our kitchen, we can be picky about the quality of the beans and be sure that the money we pay for is going to those who do the real work. Having found reputable growers producing high quality beans, we commit to purchasing their harvest always for above the market prices. Transportation via sail ships is our solution to finding a viable low carbon solution. These boats load the cocoa from the farmers directly into their hold for a wind powered journey back to Falmouth, Cornwall. Here the beans are unloaded and brought to the workshop up the road. We can’t wait to have space to transport all our beans like this in the future, for now we ship as many as we can from each year’s harvest.
