Like many, our love of chocolate began as something sweet but quickly became so much more: its audible snap, the aromatic notes of the cocoa – blissful little moments either stolen for ourselves or shared between friends. There was only one problem: if chocolate can mean so much to the people who eat it, shouldn’t it empower those who help produce it, too?
Bean to bar means connecting people directly
to the source of their chocolate with full transparency. A connection to West Africa, to the land, to the farmers; a connection to one’s self and between womankind. We produce mindfully made chocolate which will only ever contain clean goodness and quality ingredients – no dairy, soy, gluten ever and only 3 ingredients (cocoa, cocoa butter, sugar).
Women are often the ones most marginalised
by the current system. We’re working closely to inspire, empower and amplify the voices of female farmers, producers, artisans and aficionados. As a woman owned and operated company, we are proud to support our sisters from all backgrounds, stepping
into the realm of change and possibility.
Esther Djmatey, ABOCFA Cooperative
As the largest cocoa producing region, we are inextricably linked to West Africa, doing our part to create change where it matters the most. By offering single origin West African chocolate, we are addressing the urgent needs within the industry.
We set out to make chocolate everyone can feel
good about purchasing, consuming and gifting. For us, chocolate has always been about bliss, mindfulness and love. It speaks to minds, hearts and souls, encouraging us to savour those little moments we
take for ourselves and the joy we share with others.
Every time 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.

Inspired by equality, inclusivity, and meaningful connection, ZORA’s purpose is to make chocolate which speaks to your heart and nourishes your soul. Chocolate that amplifies the voices of those who need to be heard. Chocolate that inspires and empowers, emphasising the transference of love through taste, craft, and equality.
