Gluten Free

Menakao - Dark chocolate 63% with cacao nibs and fleur de sel: The crunch of nibs brings a rustic touch and blends nicely with the cacao’s red fruit notes, then a hint of fleur de sel extends the experience, highlighting the subtle acidity of the cacao beans.

The packaging features a portrait of a Tanala woman, "The Forest Dwellers". The Tanala people live in the forest region of the southeast of Madagascar. This group derives almost all of its resources from the forest.

Cocoa farmer and chocolate maker

René Julien

For their range of 75g bars, Menakao has been working with René Julien's family plantation since the beginning of 2020, located near the village of Ampamakia, 30 minutes from Ambanja (on the banks of the Sambirano River).

100 people work on the 150-hectare site where 60T of dry cocoa beans are produced annually. The plantation is located in the shade of large authentic trees that do not undergo any transformation, with 50% sunshine. The types of cocoa harvested are certified organic by ECOCERT: Trinitario (mostly), Forastero and Criollo. Fermentation & drying methods: The shelling and sorting are done manually and the plantation is equipped with fermentation tanks and a drying area; it has plans to expand the latter.

All the plantations Menakao works with are located in Sakalava villages (an ethnic group in the northwest). 60% of the families' income in this region comes from cocoa production.

Menakao Madagascar Chocolate
Since 2013, Menakao has been highlighting Malagasy know-how and diversity in a Tree-to-Bar chocolate, using the best beans from Madagascar and selecting the finest local ingredients. An ethically committed brand which, by transforming fine cocoa into chocolate in its country of origin, allows the local added value to be multiplied by four. Less than 5% of the cocoa produced in Madagascar is transformed on the island, and Menakao's bars are part of this. At the heart of Menakao chocolates, there are men and women! It is therefore quite natural that they wished to illustrate their bars by putting forward the faces of the different ethnic groups that represent the Malagasy people. The Tanala, the Betsimisaraka, the Mahafaly, the Antanosy, the Bara or the Merina, all represented in their traditional headdresses and clothes....
