We work directly with farmers to select the best cocoa beans that thrive on rich volcanic soils amidst the lush tropical forests of Davao. We strive to perfect the art and science of making the best chocolate by roasting in small batches and using wholesome ingredients to maximize the flavor potential of each origin.

As a PEZA-registered company, Auro is proud to introduce fine Filipino products here and beyond with the launch of three product lines: cocoa, couverture and retail chocolate bars.

Our journey began when we had the idea of creating Filipino chocolate made by Filipinos not only for Filipinos. What started as an idea turned into reality when we ventured into the heart of Davao and met a lot of eager cacao farmers who were instrumental in our discovery of one of the rarest heirloom cacao varieties, Criollo Porcelana. We realized that this long-forgotten national treasure was just waiting to be refined, polished and transformed into products as precious and remarkable as gold. Hence our company is named Auro, which takes inspiration from AU, the chemical element symbol of gold, and the word Oro that also means gold in Filipino and Spanish.
