Marou was established by two French men, Samuel Maruta & Vincent Mourou, (so you can see where the name comes from!) who live in Vietnam with a vision to create chocolate with 100% local ingredients, blending the cocoa of Southern Vietnam with French artisan chocolate making expertise.
Cocoa (also known as cacao) was actually introduced in Indochina in the 19th Century & then forgotten during the war years and more recently rediscovered in the past decade.
Marou use exclusively fine flavour cacao varieties grown by small farmers who cultivate cocoa trees in the shade of taller fruit trees such as coconut or cashew nut, and ferment and dry the cocoa beans themselves at their farms.
Heart of Darkness 85%: Made from beans grown on the enchanting island of Tan Phu Dong in the Mekong Delta, "Heart of Darkness" is food for both heart & mind, lush with aromas of coconut & honey and as long in the mouth as a great wine. Gold winner at the Internationl Chocolate Awards
ingredients: cocoa & cocoa butter, (85% cocoa solids), cane sugar (15%)
This product is soya, gluten, nut & dairy-free as it is made in a factory that only makes dark chocolate bars.
