A FEARLESSLY FILIPINO ARTISAN CHOCOLATIER
With its name directly translating to “chocolate and love,” Theo & Philo’s single-origin artisan chocolates express a unique boldness as it crafts premium chocolates that highlight the local ingredients of the Philippine Archipelago.
A love of crafting premium chocolate bars, responsibly sourced at above market price to provide sustainability to its local community of cacao farmers, Theo & Philo became the first single-origin, bean to bar artisan chocolatier to put the Philippines on the global stage, winning awards at the London Academy of Chocolates and the International Chocolate Awards.
Store your chocolates in a cool, dark place, ideally between 18 to 24°C. You can use the refrigerator, but place the chocolate in an airtight container to keep the moisture and humidity out — and retain its full range of flavors, of course!
