The story of Casa Kakau began in 2016 when Ivan and Iva Ilchev decided to prepare homemade chocolate from cocoa beans for their son. He is highly allergic to milk and dairy products and for him it had to be milk and animal products free, with no lecithin, gluten, additives, preserves, stabilizers or other substances that might compromise his condition. The chocolate turned out to be of exceptional tasty and quality, so they decided to share their original family recipe with more people who follow natural and healthy diet.
Today Casa Kakau can offer a larger portfolio of Vegan and Organic chocolate.
“We have never produced anything with animal ingredients and we can guarantee 100% the pure vegan origin of our goods. We use only natural products, nuts and dried fruits to live up to our slogan – Natural & Pure. This strict dedication to quality and control allowed us to become the first and only Bulgarian bean-to-bar manufacturer that is internationally recognized, with numerous awards from food and chocolate contests in The UK, Denmark, The Netherlands, Hungary and Bulgaria. - says Ivan Ilchev, the founder of the company.
All Casa Kakau products are made from cocoa beans, which the company directly imports from personally selected farms in Ecuador. Thus, the brand can guarantee the freshness and the high quality of its chocolates, while at the same time improves the quality of life of the farmers who raise the cocoa.
“Every time when you buy one of our products, you directly help Ecuador farmers receive a true reward for their labor” – Ivan Ilchev
