65% of the world’s cocoa comes from Africa. less than 1% of chocolate is made there.
Make fine chocolate in Africa. It’s a revolutionary idea in the chocolate world (some would even say a bit crazy): And there are a thousand reasons why it isn’t usually done. But, it’s an idea that can make the world a better place, generating 4x more income than fair trade cocoa alone. Every Madécasse bar you savor starts the change in one, small corner: Madagascar.
born from our Peace Corps experiences.
We’ve spent over 10 years combined working and living in Madagascar as Peace Corps Volunteers, and beyond. The island became home and the people our families and friends. Our products represent that personal connection to the island, a deeper understanding of the rich and complex flavors hidden inside the varieties of cocoa, vanilla and peppercorns found exclusively in Madagascar. The result is unique, satisfying products unlike anything you’ve tasted before.
