REAL CHOCOLATE TO THE PEOPLE

Svenska Kakaobolaget (The Swedish Cocoa Company) is Sweden’s foremost chocolate maker. We travel around the world in the hunt for the very best cacao. We roast it gently and slowly turn it into chocolate in small batches.

Just as with coffee or wine you can find individual flavor notes depending on what type of cacao is used and where it is grown. Rather than hiding the flavors behind the addition of extra fat, soy lecitine and vanilla we want to highlight the individual nuances of each bean. That’s why you will only find two ingredients in our chocolate – cacao beans and some sugar.

We are not your average chocolate maker. Our idea of chocolate and how it should be is many times the opposite of what the traditional chocolate industry thinks. As provocative as this can be to the establishment, our mission is not to produce the average anonymous chocolate bar. We are dedicated to find cacao with unusual flavors that will result in extraordinary chocolate. The kind of chocolate that blows your mind and reveals a whole new range of flavors. If you have tried one of our bars you probably know what we mean.

As we buy the beans directly from the farmers we can ensure organic farming, fair pricing and good working conditions. All this so you can enjoy fair and traceable chocolate with clear individual flavor profiles

We don’t melt chocolate, we make it.

ABOUT US

Svenska Kakaobolaget was founded in early 2015 by the chocolate nerds Ulrika and Fredrik. They had grown tired of the fact that so called chocolate factories don’t make chocolate, but rather buy chocolate and re-melt it. They had also grown tired of the fact that much of the chocolate on the market is of poor quality where the beans have been treated badly. Instead they are on a mission to show what real chocolate is about and the abundance of flavors that can be found in great cacao. They also want to contribute to a sustainable cocoa production where the farmers are fairly compensated. The factory is located in the beautiful Österlen region in the south of Sweden.
