We have made a promise that our chocolate will always be Made of Africa using cocoa beans that have never left the continent. We source our cacao beans directly from farmer cooperatives in Tanzania and produce over 100 product product variations in our factory in Cape Town, South Africa.
We believe in growing the art of chocolate-making within Africa, using the rich resources we have and supporting farmers and their local communities.
Afrikoa is the first African grown and produced chocolate brand to win a 2-star Great Taste Award as well as a silver and bronze at the International Taste Awards
Afrikoa are proud to be the only chocolate producer in Africa that uses purely heirloom cacao beans. Ancient heirloom cacao beans, also known as the ‘diamonds’ of cacao beans, are of vital cultural and culinary significance. Our chocolate is naturally organic and contains no gluten, GMO’s or palm oil.
We believe that our direct trade partnership, which treats the farmers with fairness, dignity and respect is the future of chocolate.
We combine only the finest naturally organic, heirloom cocoa beans with locally-grown unrefined cane sugar to create our range of chocolates – no gluten, soy, GMO’s, palm oil or artificial flavourings or colourings.
