Republica del Cacao, “one of the most exciting high-end cacao product ranges to come out of South America” is about to hit British shores this week with a range of ultra-premium fine cacao chocolate, made in Ecuador
The range, which includes six single origin and one blended chocolate, all of which are 100% traceable and sustainable, will be available exclusively from the Henley Bridge website.
Tracey Hughes, Managing Director of Henley Bridge, said: “Anyone who knows anything about chocolate will know that this is huge news for the industry. Republica del Cacao is the chocolate of choice for many of the world’s finest pastry chefs and chocolatiers - and this is the first time that it has been made available to professionals in the UK.
“Not only is it a brand of the utmost quality, it is also produced to meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, with authenticity and community at the heart of everything they do. Today’s discerning consumers are increasingly looking for luxury products which have been produced in an ethical way, and Republica del Cacao delivers on every level.
B Corps certification
Republica del Cacao has achieved the coveted B Corps certification, which is awarded to businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
A local brand with global impact, all the local ingredients are grown by independent farmers and small co-operatives in a unique equatorial climate, which provides the perfect conditions for growing cacao. The Local Ingredients Programme also includes a project to grow prized Panela (unrefined traditional organic sugar).
