And it comes from a simple garden.

Cho Gao has been chosen for the Cocoa Tree Development Program which is sponsored by Helvetas – Sweden. With more than 2000 ha cocoa trees, this region becomes an important cocoa production in the area. The Mekong soil in rich alluvium helps to give their cocoa beans with the unique fruity flavor. Thanks to know-how and the advanced technologies, Alluvia are able to create the top-notched chocolate bars in Vietnam. We work with local farmers to maintain the quality of the cocoa beans, commit to purchasing their products, and ensuring local’s source of income.
