Chocolate makers using Madagascar cocoa
While Chocolaterie Robert, Chocolaterie Cinagra and Chocolaterie Colbert produce their chocolates entirely in Madagascar, various producers in other countries use pre-processed Madagascan cocoa which has been exported to their factories. In case the whole cacao beans are exported from Madagascar and processed entirely at the factory and company which also packages and sells the product, such company may be considered a maker of bean-to-bar chocolate of single origin Madagascan cocoa. Some brands are produced entirely in Madagascar for export only. All brands, whether they qualify as bean-to-bar chocolate makers or not, are listed below:
