ABOUT THE MAKER

Firetree’s founders, David Zulman and Martyn O’Dare, possess a wealth of chocolate expertise and passion. David ran a large confectionery business in his native South Africa before coming to the UK, and Martyn spent many years setting up factories all over the world for both Cargill and Cocoa Barry. Back in 2017, they joined forces to create a unique small-batch, single-estate craft chocolate company in the UK. The inspiration for their name comes from the cocoa tree’s yellow, orange, and red pods, which from a distance make the tree look like it’s on fire.

THE BEANS

The farmers of Mindanao Island have the ideal combination of tropical rainforest and volcanic soil. Much of the cocoa is grown on small family farms under the shade of coconut and plantain trees; the small harvests are then combined for fermentation and drying, which makes the post-harvest process easier (and more profitable) for everyone involved.
