Akesson's Organic Chocolate is the first "Tree to Bar" chocolate maker. The Akesson family started with a single plantation in Madagascar. Today, Bertil Akesson has expanded the company's cacao network with plantations in Madagascar, Brazil, and Indonesia. If you tried craft chocolate or world-famous chocolatier chocolate, it is likely that it came from one of Akesson's cacao plantations. Akesson's Organic Chocolate bars have won a multitude of awards and is regarded as one of the best craft chocolate bars on the market.
A world-renowned spice for its delicate fragrance, pink pepper excites the senses by enhancing fruity Madagascan Criollo cacao with a floral back note. Pink 'pepper' is a different species than other widely-known peppercorns such as black or white. Rather than growing on vines, pink peppercorns are the berries of the Peruvian pepper tree, native to South America. More fragrant than other peppercorns, its profile is reminiscent of juniper and pine with subtle fruitness. It pairs beautifully with chocolate as well as it would with fatty meat and fish dishes.
