Maker

Qantu

Qantu is a chocolate maker based in Montreal. Qantu was started by Elfi and Maxime in 2016. This pair fell in love with bean to bar chocolate after researching cocoa after their first plantation visit in 2014. The immense passion and pride of the cocoa producers inspired them to create bean to bar chocolate. Qantu focuses on Peruvian cacao for the moment, which is where Maxime and Elfi met over a decade ago in Elfi’s home country. The name “ Qantu” (pronounced “Kantu”) derives from the name of the national flower of Peru and Bolivia. The word comes from the native language of the Peruvian Andes, Quechua, it represents a symbol of unity and hospitality.

Cacao Region

Amazonas, Peru

Amazonas is an Amazonian department of Peru, located in the north of the country. The vast and deep Marañón valley is partially located in Amazonas, and constitutes one of the most important physical features of the region. With a tropical landscape that includes steep river gorges and mountains, most of the department is still a part of the rainforest, an integral part of its main economic activity: agriculture. The most important crops in Amazonas are coffee, rice, cacao, and a variety of regional fruit trees.

Cacao Estate

Norandino Cooperative

Founded in 2005, the Cooperativa Norandino represents more than 7,000 families producing cocoa, coffee and panela across the north of Peru. Its mission is to improve the livelihoods of its member families by offering access to local and international markets. The cooperative is large by Peruvian standard, but it’s driven by its core values of transparency, equality, respect, responsibility, democracy and quality. All of Norandino's producers are Organic- and Fairtrade-certified, but because it represents cacao producers from so many regions of the country, chocolate makers are able to source Norandino cacao based on area of cultivation or even type of cacao. This allows makers to invest in a sustainable and equitable system while still maintaining control over their unique flavor proposition.

Lovely luxury at a great price.
