Bright with distinct notes of peach and nuts.

Located in Bundibugyo, Western Uganda, Semuliki Forest cacao is grown by 1,002 organic smallholder farmers in the region, 52% of whom are women. Latitude Trade Co. (LTC), the company that processes and exports this cacao, has organized 6 rural collection points for farmers to access, where they sell fresh cacao weekly into the network and receive cash at the point of sale.

LTC's centralized fermentation facility and warehouse is located in the village of Bumate, at the base of the hills leading into the mountains. The site is designed to take advantage of all possible available sunshine while limiting runoff from heavy rainfall.

Fermentation boxes have a 500kg capacity and total duration of fermentation varies from 5 1/2 -6 1/2 days. Beans are sun-dried on portable raised racks for 6-7 days and blended to create consistent lots before export.

Tosier Chocolate is made using the highest quality cocoa, sustainably-sourced from the world’s top 5%, so our farmers get their fair share.

All their bars are made with 70% cocoa to enable you to compare and appreciate the delicate and distinctive flavours of the beans and their varieties.

Handcrafting chocolate in 24 kilo microbatches, they only make a limited number of bars from each harvest. Like wine, each harvest is unique and the delicious flavours of each variety are enhanced by individual roasting profiles!

Maker

Tosier Chocolate are an independent family business based in the Suffolk countryside, creating award-winning bean-to-bar chocolate made from fully traceable single-origin cocoa beans. Their chocolate is vegan, as well as gluten, dairy and additive free. They have a direct trade model ensuring sustainability and positive outcomes for the small holder farmers and cooperatives they buy from. đŸ€Žâ â 

Deanna Tilston launched Tosier in Suffolk in 2017 as part of her personal journey to learn about and craft great-quality chocolate. This endeavour has turned into an award-winning chocolate maker dedicated to giving farmers a fair price as part of a transparent and traceable supply chain. Tosier’s chocolate is made in 24-kilogram batches, allowing Deanna to keep a close eye on each step of the chocolate-making process. It also means that no batch of chocolate Deanna makes will ever be quite the same; each batch and harvest that Tosier receives has different characteristics.
