Proudly Filipino Beyond Bean-to-Bar Chocolate

Auro Chocolate is an award winning, proudly Filipino bean-to-bar company that produces fine cacao and chocolate made from directly sourced beans from Mindanao farming partners. We buy our beans at higher value to inspire quality and to give farmers the opportunity to improve their standard of living. We passionately craft all of our products from scratch at our modern factory in Calamba, Laguna that is equipped with the latest technologies and certifications (HACCP, HALAL). Our commitment to quality and innovation allows us to honor the distinctive flavors of our heirloom cacao and transform them into original recipes using time-honored techniques.

Since we launched in May 2015, we have seen tremendous growth domestically and internationally, and even opened our first retail store in Tokyo. As we continue to grow, we want to continue elevating the art of cacao farming and chocolate making while creating greater social impact. 

We invite you to join our efforts to spread the love for fine chocolate that helps Filipino farmers! 

Fun Fact
