Vietnam Ben Tre Milk 40% (Award Winner)
We have a passion for uncompromising ethical sourcing and highest quality. The Ben Tre Plantations Pure Origin Chocolate from cocoa sourced from the southern region of Vietnam was the perfect choice due to its finesse, pure cocoa tones and delightful aroma as well as the plantation’s humanitarian objectives of providing employment, education and a secure income to the local community.
With its rich and lasting cocoa tones, this high percentatge milk chocolate bar has a creamy texture with notes of summer fruit, dark toffee and caramel.
The chocolate’s outstanding quality has been recognised by an independent panel of judges at the 2010 Great Taste Awards where both the 70% dark and 40% milk chocolate bars were awarded with three gold stars. In the world of the GTAs this is the highest accolade for British gastronomy and a further reason for choosing it for the project.
Bob Farrand, the man behind the GTAs says: “The GTAs are about enjoying the most sublime tasting food on the planet and what better way to enjoy arguably the world’s best chocolate than to do so while helping others not as fortunate as ourselves.
