Most chocolate is made by roasting cacao at high heat, which reduces its natural goodness. Because our cacao goes through a low-temp process, it stays choc-full of the nutrients and rich flavours that nature intended. Made with live cultures and free of refined sugar and dairy, Ombar is chocolate you can feel good about.
Our founder, Richard, started Ombar in 2007 in his home kitchen in Cambridge, UK, driven by the desire to introduce people to the power of raw cacao. He did this by creating a healthier, more nourishing chocolate, without compromising on taste. The same desire exists today and informs everything we do.
We want our whole supply chain to reflect these ideals, so we source our main ingredients directly from farmers’ cooperatives and work closely with our suppliers to ensure everyone, from farmers to exporters, are compensated fairly.
Some things in life just seem to make sense (at least to us). Like not using artificial chemicals on the food we eat. And that a plant-based diet is better for our bodies and for the planet.
Our journey at Ombar has just begun. From our Cambridge chocolate factory to the wide, wild world, join us. There’s a delicious Ombar for everyone!
