Marou is the dream child of 2 unusual French men who call Vietnam home: to create from 100% local ingredients the purest dark chocolate, blending a great cacao origin, that of Southern Vietnam & a renowned traditional know how, that of French chocolate makers. To do this we have revisited the old history cocoa in Vietnam: a crop introduced in Indochina in the 19th century, forgotten during the war years and final rediscovered in the past decade. Try our bars and find out why MAROU is quickly gaining the recognition of foddies, chefs and chocolate enthusiasts in Vietnam & throughout the world.
The Unique Taste of Marou Chocolate comes from the quality of the cocoa beans that we source with the utmost care. We use exclusively fine flavor cacao varieties, grown by small farmers who cultivate cocoa trees in the shade of taller fruit trees such as coconut or cashew nut trees and ferment the cacao beans themselves at the farm.
Each origin has its own character: the richness of the soil, the frequency of the rains, the climate of each terroir lend distinctive flavours to the cacaos grown in the Mekong Delta, the slopes of the Annamitic Range or the Central Highlands. Our aim is to bring you all the subtle accents of the cocoa in your range of single origin Vietnam chocolates.
