Established in 2017 head chocolate maker Olivier Fernandez started Gaston Chocolat in partnership with Australian David Cram. In their small factory on the main street of Port-Vila they have a gorgeous shop where you can taste their bars and see how the chocolate is made.
When they’re not making chocolate you’ll find Olivier riding his motorbike around the islands to meet with cacao farmers working to ensure great beans are available to make great chocolate. Meanwhile David is working on agriculture and community development projects throughout the Pacific.www.gastonchocolat.com
Vanuatu is home to thousands of cacao farmers but only 2 chocolate makers.
