chocolate and cocoa

Consumers want to know where their food is coming from, and are looking for chocolate and cocoa with a story. We offer a vast range of Single Origin chocolate and cocoa for you to discover.

Chocolate and cocoa with a story

Today, consumers look for authentic experiences in their everyday life, including in their food. They are triggered by products that bring authentic stories because they perceive them as a trait of exclusivity. Single Origin chocolates are very much fitting that trend: 75% of consumers think that single origin chocolate is more premium and more sustainable compared to standard chocolate. (Barry Callebaut’s own research, US, UK, Japan, France, Germany, 2018)

What is Single Origin chocolate?

Origin chocolate is made from cocoa beans grown in a specific country, region or even a specific plantation (estate). It is due to the climate and soil, together with the techniques of cacao farming and harvesting, that origin chocolates each own a signature flavor profile
Certain countries or regions make beans with outstanding flavor profiles, which earn them the name "fine flavor".
We scouted the world, sourcing beans with extraordinary stories and exceptional flavor potential to offer you a comprehensive range of chocolates and cocoa powders. Read more about them here:
