At 40% cacao this isn’t your usual white chocolate. It’s not too sweet (more cacao butter than sugar) and super creamy. Described as a “dulce de leche white chocolate” the caramelized milk meets molasses-flavoured cane sugar.
Formed in in 2016, Latitude Chocolate Company is on a mission to create a chocolate industry in Uganda. In the shadow of the Rwenzori mountains, Latitude Trade Co started a centralised fermentary and drying operation to increase the value chain for local farmers. They are now working with 1500 local plantations who have been vetted for safe and ethical and organic practices - running a quality post-harvest production they are able to sell the dried beans for a premium and feed that money back to the farmers through pricing way above the market rates.
A certified B Corporation you can enjoy their chocolate bars knowing that every part of the process is ethical and sustainable. The shipment from Uganda was hands down the most expensive parcel we've ever had delivered (per kilogram) but it was worth it - we're delighted to be able to support this fabulous enterprise. We hope you enjoy all these amazing bars.
