Many chocolate makers consider Madagascar cocoa to be one of the best cocoa beans in the world. The cocoa beans that Krak Chocolate uses are slightly different from those of other chocolate makers. They come from the Ottange Farm, located on the Ramena River, in northwestern Madagascar in the Sambirano Valley. The Ottange Farm is part of the Mava plantations and is the smallest of the eight plantations. In 2017, the Ottange Farm won the International Cocoa awards. In 2019 it was included in the Cocoa of Excellence top 50 cacaos. About 6 tons of cocoa beans are grown on the Ottange farm every year. Most of this is used by the owner, the Ramanandraibe family, to make chocolate themselves. A small portion is sold, Krak Chocolate is lucky enough to be able to make their bars with this special cacao.
