Sustainability from the beginning
Creating change through chocolate starts in small villages in a remote corner of Madagascar, 50km from the nearest road or telephone. This is the home of the forest-farm cooperatives. And this is where Madecasse's cocoa comes from. it's a unique partnership, where they travel by oxcart to work with them, share their table table for meals, and together produce a unique style of cocoa. Through this relationship, and your purchases of their chocolate, they provide the cooperatives with training, equipment and a stable market. And the cooperatives provide them with quality cocoa, and a constant reminder of why they started this business.
There are very few fine chocolates made from bean to bar (from scratch) in the world. There are even fewer made fresh at the source, where the cocoa grows. And there are fewer still made in Africa. Chocolate Maker Shahin Cassam Chenai brings out the best Madagascar cocoa and craft chocolate making. The result is a single-origin chocolate, made entirely in Madagascar, which rivals the flavor of the best European chocolates. A self taught Chocolate Maker, Shahin Cassam Chenai works with a local team to discover the perfect roast and right touch for each Madecasse chocolate. The result is smooth, well-balanced chocolate full of the fruity notes that made Madagascar cocoa so delicious.
Pronounced mah-day-cas, madecasse is an old French word that refers to the island of Madagascar and its people. The founders of Madecasse have spent over 10 years combined working and living in Madagascar as Peace Corps Volunteers, and beyond. The island became home and the people their families and friends. Their 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. 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.
