Dark chocolate MEKONGA 70%

Vietnam - Mekong Delta


This indulgent dark chocolate is packed with cocoa flavour and a surprising aftertaste with the subtle and sharp notes of fresh cocoa beans. The beans are grown as part of a project to support young disabled people.


ERITHAJ teams buy pods from small farming families deep in the Mekong delta before it is made into cocoa at the Work Help Centre established by Vietcacao. This is where disabled young people ferment and dry the beans. Chocolaterie de l'Opéra was won over by the cocoa beans' flavour profile and decided to support the project with a commitment to orders for several years.
