We believe in sourcing quality ingredients through ethical means to produce a deliciously pure product, so you know exactly what you’re getting. The name ‘Honest’ also extends to our business practices and the way we treat our staff.
Cacao only grows 20 degrees on either side of the Equator, so cacao doesn’t actually grow in South Africa. The cacao used in our bonbons and chocolate spreads come from Tanzania.
Cacao farmers and their greater community have for a long time been exploited and unethically treated. Ethically sourced cacao refers to a trading partnership between the farmers, buyers and chocolate makers that is based on transparency, mutual respect and equal rights for both parties. We try as far as possible to work with trusted partners in sourcing the cacao from farmers that are well treated and given their fair share.
Agave is a natural fructose that comes from the Blue Agave plant. Agave has a low GI (Glycemic Index) so it provides slow release energy.
We source the best quality Arriba Nacional cacao from Ecuador from farmers who are then paid their fair share. All the ingredients in our chocolate slabs are organic. All our chocolate is also handmade to increase job creation and skill development. All these add costs to the overall making of the chocolate.
