Solkiki – Taking ethical chocolate seriously.

From their 100% renewably powered chocolate workshop, to their emphasis on trading ethically via direct trade schemes with cocoa growers (which lets the farmers set their own cocoa prices and goes way beyond Fair Trade), it’s clear that Solkiki are obsessive about producing high quality chocolate, that’s also ethically produced too.

For the chocolate connoisseur, this means a chocolate bar that has been hand-processed by Solkiki at every step, using the most intricate of techniques, to provide a chocolate experience in which one really can taste the difference. Solkiki are one of only a few bean-to-bar chocolate makers in Europe today.

Solkiki began in 2008, when its creators, unable to find any chocolate that was suitable for their vegan, dairy free diet, expanded beyond their “life-long love affair” with chocolate and began experimenting by making their very own chocolate bars. Favourable customer reviews from the first fine-flavoured, artisan dark chocolate bars produced, encouraged Solkiki to increase their range and indulge their passion for milk and white chocolate bars as well.

Today, Solkiki’s chocolate is still hand produced in micro-batches which, claim the Dorset based bean-to-bar chocolate makers, allows them to stay true to their aim of “making exceptional chocolate for everyone”.

This includes making their range of white, high cocoa content milk and dark chocolate bars suitable for vegans and vegetarians alike, but it doesn’t stop there. Every bar is also organic, fair-trade and free from alcohol and dairy, with most bars also free of Soya Lecithin.

For example, their Solkiki Maranon 60% dairy free, salted milk chocolate bar, gets its creamy texture and taste from the use of organic coconut in place of normal dairy. It’s a beautifully sweet and floral milk chocolate bar from Solkiki. Created from rare, Pure Nacional cocoa beans (cocoa that was thought to be extinct for nearly a century and only re-discovered in 2011, growing at twice their usual altitude) from the remote Maranon river canyon of Peru. As one can imagine, these cocoa beans are highly prized and sought after.

Another popular Solkiki dark chocolate bar is their Toledo 71% dark chocolate bar. Made from single estate Trinitario and Criollo cocoa beans, it contains mouth-watering flavours; an edge of citrus and green grapes balanced with a light chocolate flavour with a vanilla and liquorice edge. A truly outstanding chocolate bar with good depth of flavour and long melt.

Solkiki’s Hazelnut Cream, dairy free, white chocolate bar is also both organic and fair-trade. Made from cold-pressed cocoa butter, white chocolate is combined with hazelnuts to create a light and creamy gianduja (hazelnut paste) recipe chocolate bar.

Solkiki chocolate may not be as perfectly smooth as you may have experienced with many larger chocolate makers, but theirs is truly artisan bean-to-bar chocolate, hand-made in micro batches, which produces flavour profiles that are truly unique.

Chocolate Trading Co has 7 different chocolate bars from the Solkiki range in stock, all available to buy online from our award winning website.

Solkiki’s single origin and single estate bars make a great chocolate gift, especially for those whom other chocolate bars do not cater for the dietary needs of Vegans or those on restricted diets.

But you don’t need to be on a restrictive diet to enjoy the fruits of Solkiki’s life-long love affair with chocolate. Try some today and taste the difference for yourself.
