We want to bring you closer to the origins of our products. These locations, their vast beauty, and boundless abundance plays a huge part in making our products extra special. Bite into our chocolate to taste the richness of the Congo, let the gold bracelet that’s on your wrist transport you to witness Kenya’s beautiful sunsets, and take a step closer to this world of wonder.

More likely than not, you already have a piece of the Democratic Republic of the Congo without even knowing, in your phone, laptop, chocolate bar or jewellery. Minerals and other natural resources, including the majority of the world’s cobalt and copper supply, used in hundreds of other modern devices, are mined from the Congo. But the Congo’s real wealth lies in its people and its forests.

Second, only to the Amazon, the Congo River Basin, a tropical rainforest, is critical to combat climate change and is the heart of the Congo’s identity. With lava lakes at the Nyiragongo volcano to Africa’s oldest national park, Virunga, or the Okapi Wildlife Reserve, the DRC is home to strange and unique looking animals including one that looks like a curious cross of a giraffe and zebra. The small-scale farmers we work with are the custodians of mighty forests in the Congo, where they cultivate shade grown cocoa and coffee, protecting the natural biodiversity by preventing the spread of deforestation.
There is a local saying that goes “when you are at rock bottom, you can still dig deeper.” The Congo River Basin has been inhabited by people for over 50,000 years.

They have generations worth of knowledge about the ecosystem and have coexisted with nature in all its full force and bounty. Belonging to over 200 ethnic groups including the Pygmy Tribes, the people of the Congo stand together, proud like their beautiful mountains and trees, preserving their cultural and ancestral heritage through their arts and their camaraderie, something we could all benefit to learn from!

Straight out of a wildlife documentary on National Geographic, or a screening of Lion King, Kenya is the cradle of mankind, the largest producer of roses, home to the great wildebeest migration, and the fastest mammals on earth (cheetahs AND Kenyan athletes!). Nairobi is the only capital city in the world to have a National Park within its borders, where you can see 4 out of the coveted Big Five (lions, leopards, buffalos, and rhinos). Elephants can be spotted in some of the other 23 national parks, 15 national reserves and several private conservancies across the country, which is slightly smaller than Texas! Kenya boasts immaculate beaches, lush forests, and piercing desertscapes.

Home to Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize for her environmental activism, Kenya has been lauded for centuries for its natural beauty and diversity. The official language, Swahili, is heavily influenced by Bantu languages, Arabic, Hindi, and Portuguese, nodding to Kenya’s rich history as a trading hub going back thousands of years. The coastal town of Mombasa was established in 900 AD, and was a center for traders from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe to meet and trade everything from spices to exotic animals. The country is a melting pot of diverse cultures and ethnicities, with a rich ecosystem and perfect weather.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of cosmopolitan Nairobi, you’ll find us working joyfully at our chocolate factory with our team of local artisans, welcomed by the national motto of Harambee (all pull together), and supported by the boundless generosity and hospitality of the Kenyan people.
Buy and indulge in our world-class products, coming to you from the cradle of mankind!
