We started out with an initiative of bringing something different to the market;a vegan, organic, gluten-free chocolate stick without preservatives, produced in small batches.
We carefully source our ingredients and make our chocolate couverture, butternuts, and seeds from scratch.
Our cacao is purchased through a third party vendor that practices a values-driven sourcing model by buying cacao directly from cooperatives and grower organizations. By cutting out the middleman in the conventional supply chain, we can ensure more revenue goes to the growers.
We use cacao from Oko-Caribe, a co-op located in the village of Pimentel in San Francisco de Macoris in the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is known for their delicious cacao. In fact, it supplies the majority of organically cultivated cacao to the world. At Oko-Caribe, both quality and community are of the utmost importance. The fermentary is committed to supplying a consistently superior quality of cacao, all while supporting the farmers and their families that make the product possible.
Here at Morito Chocolates, we are dedicated to taking the word handcrafted seriously, and we honor it in a way that is environmentally and socially responsible.
