We are a Filipino bean-to-bar chocolate company who sources cacao beans directly from local farmers to ensure that they earn more for their labor, securing them a better quality of life.
We hope for the Philippines to be a major player in the global market by promoting locally-grown cacao beans made into quality bean-to-bar chocolate and chocolate products.
We dream to uplift the lives of our cocoa farmers by fully committing to a fair and direct trade relationship.
We aspire to become a chocolate company who showcases the best chocolate flavors from different cacao growing regions in the Philippines.
