ABOUT THE BAR

This bar has a ripe fruit flavour profile, with hints of citrus and caramel.

ABOUT THE MAKER

Ruket founders Alessandro and Marco have always loved food and been fascinated by traditional, artisanal production. Their discovery of craft chocolate happened almost by accident; when Marco wanted to use the best possible chocolate in his ice cream parlour, the pair started experimenting with cacao. The two quickly decided that this chocolate was much more than just an ingredient and that they wanted to share it with the world. Working with a select few origins, Marco and Alessandro are keen to spread the word and let people discover for themselves the art and flavours of bean-to-bar chocolate.

ABOUT THE BEANS

The beans for this bar were cultivated in the Semukili Forest in Uganda. The cacao is grown by 1,002 organic Semuliki smallholder famers, 52% of which are women. Latitude Trace Co. (LTC), the company which processes and exports this cacao, has introduced 6 rural collection points to ensure easy access for the farmers, enabling them to sell fresh cacao every week into the network and receive their payment directly when they sell. LTC’s centralised fermentation facility and warehouse is located in the village of Bumate, which sits at the base of the hills leading into the mountains.
