In stock


Castronovo crafts its chocolate in Stuart, Florida, from fine flavour cacao that is sustainably harvested and grown in Central and South America.

Massachusetts-born Denise Castronovo is the leading lady behind Castronovo chocolate. But for Denise, chocolate wasn’t always on the cards. Denise studied environmental studies at college, attained a masters in economics and went on to start her PhD in ecology at the University of Georgia. Denise didn’t finish this, but instead wanted to enter the workforce with the skills she had learnt whilst studying and became a professor. Whilst spending 15 years in the field of mapping technology and spatial analysis, part of which included returning to Boston and running the Geographic Information Center at Tufts University, it was the harsh winters of Boston that pushed Denise and her husband to somewhere warm. Florida.

In their new home of Florida, Denise was self-employed as a Geographic Information consultant but became curious about other things she was able to do. Interested in superfoods and the craft chocolate movement that were both taking off.. It was the plethora of flavours of single origin cacao that intrigued.
