Menakao Chocolates | Best African Chocolates from Madagascar in India
EXOTIC AFRICAN CHOCOLATES FROM MADAGASCAR
Menakao is a bean-to-bar chocolate which sources all its ingredients from the island of Madagascar! Menakao was founded by Shahin Cassam Chenai as a tribute to the entrepreneurial spirit of his forefathers. The Cassam Chenai family, originally from the Gujarat province of western India have been living in Madagascar for five generations. Menakao uses only the best Madagascan cocoa beans, which have been granted the “Fine Cocoa” label by the ICCO (UK). The beans are of the finest quality, & offer beautifully aromatic and floral notes, fresh acidity and a tart finish. Moreover, Menakao follows the fair-trade approach and produces the chocolates locally, thus helping the local Madagascan population by generating more income and employment opportunities.
