Bertil Akesson’s journey through the fascinating world of cocoa, spices and other delicious natural wonders started in Madagascar, at his family’s estates. There he learned over the years the secrets and subtleties of managing and developing plantations. Ultimately, he focused on and specialised in fine cocoa and spices, with the consistent aim of achieving the highest quality in a sustainable way. Today, his plantations in Madagascar, in Brazil and Indonesia supply world famous chocolatiers and chefs. In close collaboration with these passionate artists, he experienced the fascinating artwork to conjure cocoa into chocolate or how pepper enhances recipes and, ultimately, launched a small and exclusive line of chocolate and fine exotic foods.
Since 1920, these farms produce world-famous aromatic cocoa and today most of the top chefs and chocolate makers around the world use cocoa from this estate. Besides 300 tons of Trinitario cocoa produced every year, a very limited quantity of Criollo beans – 2 tons per year – is harvested separately to make this chocolate. It has a very expressive cocoa aroma with subtle fruity-sweet tartness and pleasant flavour notes that evoke citrus and red berries.
