Fiji – Matasawalevu 73%

Cocoa was introduced in Fiji in 1880 by the British with several  varieties Trinitario from Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and Trinidad . The modern day development of the industry was initiated in 1960’s when the government made efforts to establish cacao as a smallholder crop to be interplanted with coconut.  The Amelando variety was introduced as it proved to be relatively disease resistant.  Although the government efforts and increased prices resulted in an upswing  in the industry during the second half of the 60’s, exports lingered at insignificant levels until the mid 70’s and did not take off considerably  until the early 1980’s as world prices increased. Following independence,  there was a large government led cocoa expansion program based on Amelonado variety.  Fijian cocoa production remained fairly constant during the 80’s and peaked at all time high of 468 tonnes in 1987.

Our chocolate is made from Amelonado cacao grown on Vanua Levu, Fiji. The beautiful Matasawlevu farm is nestled on the foothills overlooking the Dreketi river.

We buy this cacao directly from the grower to make a 73% dark chocolate using only cacao, sugar and cocoa butter. The bar has a strong chocolate base with notes of dried tropical fruit.

Ingredients: Cacao, Organic Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter.
