Tuandua, our 100g chocolate orangutan, created to help support the work of SOS the Sumatran Orangutan Society.
By the way, Tuan means 'Sir' in Malay, and 'Dua' means two as is he is our second Orangutan in the family!
You may remember that Tuandua used to be called Tuantoo - but we have recently updated his name. If you place an order for Tuandue, you may receive a Tuantoo-labeled box as we do not waste packaging!
Tuandua is made with our single origin 72% dark chocolate from Madagascar, weighs 100g and is a bespoke and unique design created in collaboration with Lush Cosmetics, another (much bigger!) Dorset brand. They very kindly adapted their SOS orangutan mould for us to be able to make a chocolate version. Lush have supported SOS for many years and have recently raised money from the sale of their orangutan soaps to buy back land that has been destroyed by palm oil plantations & now we are doing our bit to help reforest these areas of land with our chocolate orangutans!
They are delighted that we are joining the cause to reforest areas of this precious rainforest as not are orangutans under threat but also rhinos, tigers & elephants. All 4 of these iconic species are now classified as "critically endangered" because of the destruction of their habitat.
Help us rebuild the rainforest
Every Tuandua, Tuan or Tuantiga sold will buy and plant one cocoa tree seedling, which will help bring sustainable trees back to deforested areas to restore the orangutan's habitat and will fruit in the future.
As of May 2023, we have funded the planting of over 10,000 trees.
We were also thrilled to discover from the SOS team in Sumatra, that orangutans love eating cocoa bean flesh fresh from the pod! Growing cocoa will also bring wider income streams to local farmers. In five years' time, we hope to be buying the cocoa beans from the farmers, to make orangutan-approved Chococo chocolate!
Did you know that some of the biggest British chocolate brands contain palm oil?
It is added to cut costs as they replace a % of the more expensive cocoa butter with cheaper "vegetable fats" including palm oil. It is easy to avoid chocolate containing it though as they have to declare it in their ingredients labels. We never have, & never will use palm oil as we only work with fine chocolate made with pure cocoa butter.
Why is palm oil so harmful?
Palm oil isn't harmful when farmed sustainably, however, unfortunately in Sumatra, the rainforests are under immense threat from industrial-scale deforestation, with huge areas being flattened to make way for farmland due to the overwhelming international demand for palm oil. Some of it is farmed sustainably but sadly, most of it isn't. In Sumatra, there is now 4 times as much land cultivated with oil palms as there is orangutan habitat remaining & there are now only 14,600 orangutans left - putting them on the critically endangered list...
Please note that you may receive a Tuantoo in your order - this is the same as Tuandua!
