Chocolat Madagascar set to launch fresh cashew vegan range at ISM

Premium confectionery brand Chocolat Madagascar is set to showcase its latest line of bars targeting the vegan market specially developed using fresh cashew chocolate, at this year’s ISM in Cologne, Germany, writes Neill Barston.

The company, which has gained multiple awards for its artisan-crafted chocolate series, including accolades from Great Taste, and the Academy of Chocolate among other international honours.

Its latest offering, which is available as organic certified, is a fine milk and white alternative chocolate range using pure  cashew nuts provide a healthy creamy alternative to milk, with the business growing cashew nuts in Madagascar as well as fine cacao and cane sugar.

It is crafted in Madagascar at the Chocolaterie in Antananarivo, making the Vegan milC & blanC where “C” stands for the Cashew nuts, creating a sustainable local product with  low food miles from farm to chocolate all in Madagascar.

The company is offering its series as (40% – 65% cacao) as 1 Kg Baking/ Couvertures in easy weight melt and temper format (10 x 100g) that stay fresher longer.
and for Retail 85g bars and 5g Neapolitans.

“The pure roasted cashew nuts & fine cacao are freshly mixed and conched together creating a creamy, gentle flavours and smooth texture from Malagasy cashew nuts with hints of banana and red fruit flavours the fine cacao of Sambirano, Madagascar” remarks Hery Andriamampianina – Technical Director and Chocolatier.

As the business notes, as well as its distinctive taste, there are nutritional benefits of cashew over cow’s milk: more fibre, iron, magnesium, zinc, niacin, folate, vitamin e, vitamin k, Mono and Poly fats, as well as  sugar, saturated Fats, or cholesterol.

Furthermore, as the company noted, as it does not use chemical processing ( alkalisation) in our chocolate making, it preserves the integrity of the ingredients, more of the good flavanols and antioxidants – and we do not add any flavour enhancers like vanilla.\

Its fine flavour cacao has special flavours that use more more cacao in our Vegan MilC and Vegan Blanc than typical EU chocolate standards, and much less sugar.

Nicolas Randrianarimala Export Manager added: “exporting chocolate from Madagascar, helps the economy of Madagascar by many times more than just exporting cacao only, an ethical business process called Raisetrade.” German importer and distributor, Oliver Dilli of  will be offering Chocolat Madagascar samples at Hall 5.2 Stand: G031a contact: [email protected]
