Flint Chocolate (1)

Flint Chocolate is passionately rooted in sustainability, ethics and craft. Our chocolate is handmade with care, from bean to bar, in a small factory in Auckland. We prefer the slower, more traditional method of stone-grinding cacao to retain flavour and nutrients.

Our aim is to inspire a shift in the way chocolate is valued and consumed. Cacao that has been thoughtfully grown and minimally processed offers many benefits, including essential minerals that support the immune system and improve heart health. Not to mention cacao's ability to lift mood and energy levels, and sharpen cognitive function!

We’re passionate about supporting independent, specialty cacao growers who focus on quality before high yield. Focus becomes on protecting the land, preserving biodiversity, and supporting a better quality of life.

We make a range of rich, dark chocolate bars, medicinal grade 100% cacao pods, and refined sugar-free baking chocolate. All produced from ethically-traded cacao and organic whole food ingredients. Our chocolate is food for the soul and a nourishing part of our daily lives. We hope to inspire a greater connection to the chocolate you enjoy.
