Elevating the Standards of Cacao and Chocolate Production in the Philippines
Fun fact: The Philippines is the first country in Asia to grow cacao in the 17th century due to the Manila-Acapulco galleon trade. Filipinos have developed a rich tradition of turning cacao into drinking chocolate, locally known as tablea, tableya or sikwate. This tradition has been lovingly passed down from generation to generation, but has unfortunately been declining in recent decades. Auro Chocolate is innovating on this cultural heritage by pushing the boundaries in our process - from fermentation to packaging, so that this tradition can be appreciated not only by newer generations of Filipinos but also the rest of the world.
With Auro’s respect over quality, their aim is to elevate the standards of cacao and premium chocolate production in the Philippines. With this they have invested in a 2,000 sqm factory equipped with the latest European technology. The facility is designed to meet the strictest international standards of HALAL and HACCP certification
Best stored between 16 to 18 degrees Celsius, away from direct sunlight and protected from high humidity.
While we do due diligence and quality checks, the sealed packaging of chocolates will not allow us to check them and there could be a change that some of these coins or chips stick together while in transit.
This will not affect the quality and taste of the chocolates in any way. The best remedy is to immediately place them in the fridge for a few hours and roughly chop them into smaller pieces when ready to use in your intended recipe.
