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.
Certified Organic – The Ambolikapiky Plantation is part of Bertil Åkesson’s 2000ha Bejofo Estate. Located in the Sambirano Valley, in the North-West of Madagascar, the plantation produces since 1920 world-famous aromatic cocoa. Besides 300 tons per year of Madagascar Trinitario cocoa, a very limited production of Criollo cocoa (2 tons per year) is harvested separately. This chocolate has a very expressive cocoa aroma with subtle fruity-sweet tartness and pleasant flavour notes that evoke citrus and red berries.
