The Grenada Chocolate Company Ltd. was founded in 1999 with the idea of creating an Organic Cocoa Farmers' and Chocolate-Makers' Cooperative. We produce high quality Organic dark chocolate in Grenada with our world famous cocoa beans. Our factory is nestled in lush cocoa groves in Grenada's pristine rainforest.Our award-winning organic dark chocolate has the wonderful complex flavor of Grenada's fine-flavored organic cocoa beans, processed carefully in small batches. Producing chocolate right where the cocoa grows allows us to do our own fermenting which gives us a real advantage in creating the finest, most complex taste from the beans. We use our own extracted cocoa butter in our chocolate also from Grenada's fine-flavored cocoa. This brings in a luxurious extra richness and chocolaty flavor. Our chocolate has a truly deep and rich flavor.We now have over 200 acres of organic cocoa farms in our cooperative and operate our own cocoa fermentry, located one mile from our little factory. This assures that we perform every activity involved in the production of our chocolate, from the planting and growing of the cocoa trees to the fermenting of the fresh cocoa beans to the processing of our fine dark chocolate. We grow our cocoa totally naturally without the use of any chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers and have been Certified Organic.Our sugar is a fine organic raw sugar produced and milled by an organic growers' cooperative in Brazil.Whole organic vanilla beans grown biodynamically in Costa Rica provide our "dash" of vanilla.Organic soy lecithin is used as emulsifier in extremely small amounts.We are one of the only small-scale chocolate-makers producing fine chocolate where the cocoa grows. Because small batch chocolate-making is very rare, we had to create our own processing methods, desigining our own machines and refurbishing antique equipment to meet the requirements of our unique situation. Most of our machines are based in design on those of the early 1900's, a time when quality had precedence over quantity in chocolate-making. Because we care about our environment, we use solar-electric energy to power our machines.The original impetus and principle of our cooperative company is to revolutionize the cocoa-chocolate system that typically keeps cocoa production separate from chocolate-making and therefore takes advantage of cocoa farmers.We believe that the cocoa farmers should benefit as much as the chocolate-makers. We won the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2008, 2011 and 2013 Silver Medal in the Best Dark Chocolate Bar category! Check it out!We are now pleased to annouce the opening of our new factory outlet called Bonbon Chocolates where we produce delicious chocolates right on-site. Located right on our largest Organic cocoa farm and cocoa fermentry, called Belmont Estate, Bonbon Chocolates feature a wide variety of chocolate bonbons, combining our chocolate with the many fruits, nuts and spices of Grenada. With all locally grown ingredients together with our locally grown and processed dark chocolate, our new line of Bonbons are purely delicious, natural and healthy. At Bonbon Chocolates, we are also pleased to offer the lowest price in Grenada for our chocolate bars.For a tour of our cocoa fermentry and our new Bonbon Chocolate shop, visit us at Belmont Estate in St. Patrick

Nice to see the history behind Grenada chocolate making which is now distributed worldwide! We sampled several kinds of chocolate and learned about the historic chocolate making process. Bonus was the talking parrot on the walking tour!

Finally got a chance to visit this old plantation. Where cocoa beans are still processed from the traditional way from beginning to end. Tour guides will take you on a short tour through the plan station teaching in the process and then you have free time too Rome the beautiful grounds.

This organic chocolate factory makes chocolate bars that are 80%,70% and 60% pure. A bit of cane sugar and vanilla and in some cases, sea salt, enhances the chocolate flavour. This is pure bean to bar. Grenadian cocoa, some of the world's finest, made into chocolate by Grenadian cholocate makers. A sustainable treat.

We lived in Grenada for a few months and visited this place twice. Both times it was closed for "cleaning". We were able to see where they could be making chocolate, but it was more of a tour of the facility. No actual chocolate ever being made. The same thing happened with several of our friends. It was a great... More

The Grenada Chocolate company draws its raw cocoa from a collective of local farmers. The beans are processed at the nearby Belmont Estate then transformed into chocolate in this small eco-friendly solar and water powered factory. The intensive hand processing of moulding and packing the chocolate provides steady employment for locals. Link you visit with lunch at the Belmont Estate,... More

We had a tour of the process in April 2016. We went through the process of taking the pod from the tree to creating the cocoa beans ready to be made into chocolate. The guide was very friendly and informative and we really enjoyed the whole experience including lunch in the restaurant. Well worth a visit

Never will I under-appreciate a chocolate bar again. This tour took us from the fruit on the tree in the orchards to the chocolate bar itself. The cocoa beans are coated with a slimy but deliciously sweet coating within the pod, which we got to taste and then we observed the drying process and all the machinery and steps that... More
