Gold Medal winner in the Outstanding NZ Food Producer Awards 2023

Foundry Chocolate have crafted their refreshingly assertive and award wining single origin Kilombero Valley, Tanzania chocolate into delectable bite sized miniature chocolate eggs just in time for Easter.

Nestled between the rice fields and sugar cane plantations of the Kilombero Valley in Tanzania are masterful farmers growing outstanding organic cacao. Foundry Chocolate use this to craft an assertive chocolate layered with a refreshing crispness.

While Kilombero Valley, Tanzania evokes flavours of baked stone fruit, Christmas cake and cherries it’s simply the cacao’s origin talking – plus organic cane sugar and their obsession for preserving the flavours of provenance.

And because your senses are unique, you may discover characters and aromas others may not - that’s the magic of Foundry Chocolate.

Origin:
The cacao beans grown in the Kilombero Valley are sourced from Kokoa Kamili, which was founded by Brian LoBue and Simran Bindra, who have backgrounds in international development throughout eastern and southern Africa. Prior to Kokoa Kamili, a single buyer dominated the area – the local arm of one of the world’s largest soft commodity trading houses. A sole buyer meant it had the power to set the price for cocoa, and farmers had little alternatives. Historically, farmers in the Kilombero Valley received some of the lowest prices for cocoa in the country. In Kokoa Kamili’s first year alone Kilombero farmers received the highest prices in Tanzania for their cocoa. 

Today, Kokoa Kamili works with nearly 3000 small holder farmers, most of whom farm between 0.5-2 acres of cocoa. Kokoa Kamili pays a premium - well above the market rate - to farmers for their ‘wet’ cocoa, and conducts its own fermentation and drying. By taking over the fermentation and drying process, Kokoa Kamili can produce more consistently higher quality cocoa beans. This method gives farmers a reduced workload, along with greater compensation, and the farmers are paid immediately after the cooperative receives its wet beans.

Kokoa Kamili also distributes cocoa seedlings to farmers in the community. In the past three years, they have aided in the planting of over 140,000 trees.

Kokoa Kamili is situated in the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, an area known for its abundance of bird and mammal wildlife. It is most famous for the eleven different primate species, bird life, and is one of three remaining sites that support Savannah Elephants in a mountainous environment. Current estimates say that 2,000 elephants reside in and around the Udzungwa area. Credit: Meridian Cacao
