ÓBOLO Chocolate is Chile’s first bean-to-bar chocolate company. We have been producing small batches of international award winning quality chocolate since 2013. We are passionate about chocolate and committed to fair trade, sustainability and minimal environmental impact.
The word ÓBOLO means a gift or a small contribution in Spanish. We at ÓBOLO are very grateful to everyone who supports us daily on this adventure: the cacao farmers, our local community, employees, clients, friends and family. ÓBOLO is our small gift back to the world; our way of saying thank you.
ÓBOLO Chocolate is in process of certification as a B-Corporation, which means we meet the most rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.
FROM BEAN TO BAR
Making ÓBOLO’s bean-to-bar chocolate starts in the Amazon rainforest, where we share time, knowledge and experiences with the cacao farmers. They are much more than suppliers of our raw materials: they are the protectors of the forest and its biodiversity, our friends and partners with whom we share common values of quality, equity and sustainability – values that characterize our chocolate.
After selecting and importing the best cocoa beans, we toast, peel, winnow, grid, temper and mold them into chocolate bars in our workshop, in order to highlight the unique natural flavors and aromas, or terroir, of the cocoa beans.
