Hiraya Artisan Chocolates: Filipino Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Company

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Who doesn't love chocolates? I've never met anyone who refuses to take a bite of these yummy sweet treats that are loved by both young and old alike.

There are quite so many brands available especially with the imported or foreign brands, but did you know that there are also a few Filipino brands out there?

Hiraya Chocolates takes its name from HIRAYA which is an ancient Filipino word which means “the fruit of one’s hopes, dreams, and aspirations.” Quite appropriately, the fruits, or "cacao beans" in this case, are harvested and sourced directly from local farmers. The company is a Filipino bean-to-bar chocolate company who follow sustainable, socially-conscious practices, and fair trade principles, making them an ideal company to patronize.

Their mission is to improve the lives of our cacao farmer communities through direct and fair trade. Their vision is to produce a strong brand of fine quality chocolate and chocolate products. To date, they have one (1) community composed of 58 farmers in Brgy. Malabog, Davao City.

The company may be profit-oriented just like any other business, but at its core they also tackle and help provide solutions for social issues. Their efforts have since provided +200% in income for their
community of farmers in Davao.

Their products are as follows:

* 72% Dark Chocolate Single-Origin Davao (85g)
* Flavor Profile: fruity with just a slight hint of bitterness
* 100% locally sourced ingredients, all-natural, hand harvested cacao
* No preservatives, no additives, no artificial flavors, suitable for vegans
* SRP: PHP180.00

* Hiraya x Kalsada Chocolate Bar with Coffee Nibs (70g)
* Flavor Profile: strong and robust coffee notes
* Featuring premium coffee beans sourced from the highlands of Sitio Belis, Benguet Province
* Collaboration with Kalsada Coffee—a social enterprise
based in Manila and Seattle that promotes specialty coffee from the Philippines
* SRP: PHP200.00
