Mike & Becky’s partners from Mountains of the Moon grow their cacao in the Northern part of the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Sugar is the nicotine of the 21th century. Mike & Becky are continuously looking to reduce sugar in their recipes. This bar is an experiment of omitting our organic beetroot sugar completely from their Mutwanga milk chocolate. Thanks to lactose, the natural sugar present in milk powder, this bar offers an easier transition to a sugar-free chocolate than a 100% dark bar. The bar has a strong cacao punch coupled with silky creaminess.

Their only (dark) milk bar is made from organic and fair forastero /trinitario cacaobeans.

On the ecological packaging an okapi is pictured. This is also the area where the enigmatic okapi, a ‘forest giraffe’, can be found. Only discovered in the early 20th century this animal is unique with a dark velvety coat, white striped legs, huge ears and long neck. Sadly, the okapi is under serious threat from the impact of human activities, as their population decreased by over 50% in just 15 years.
