What is ZORA?
ZORA is an African, female-owned sustainable chocolate company committed to celebrating West African cocoa, elevating its growers, and supporting female economic empowerment. Our aim is to make chocolate which speaks to your heart and nourishes your soul, emphasizing the transference of love through taste, craft, equity and equality.
How is ZORA different?
Think farm-to-table chocolate. As a profit-for-purpose company, we care about building a sustainable model for cocoa growers that will last for generations.
Where is your cocoa sourced from?
Our beans are sourced from an Organic, Fair Trade farmer cooperative in Suhum, Ghana called ABOCFA. The co-op employs over 900 farmers. The cocoa they produce is widely regarded as some of the finest in the world, with a detailed, rich, and wonderfully sweet flavor profile. ABOCFA is run democratically, and every farmer gets a say in how the co-op’s funds are spent. We are proud of our ability to trace the cocoa bean’s journey, and share it with you.
How does Women’s Economic Empowerment tie to chocolate?
ZORA is building a more gender equal cocoa supply chain. Through our economic empowerment and educational programs, we support our sisters in Ghana to positively impact their households, communities and generations to come.
How does 1 Bar = 1 Academic School day work?
Everytime you buy a ZORA chocolate bar, we dedicate a portion of the purchase price to funding one school day for a girl in rural Ghana. Research has shown that when we invest in girls’ education, we foster economic growth, contribute to healthier families and take another step towards gender equality.
