MS 5: Marou, Faiseurs de Chocolat

IMG_3955Launching August 11, 2017. Please join us in tasting the Dak Lak 70% bar.

Marou, Faiseurs de Chocolat, was founded in 2011 by Vincent Mourou and Samuel Maruta and is based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The company is the first artisan chocolate maker based in Vietnam, and works in close collaboration with farmers, cooperatives and cacao experts to make Vietnamese chocolate a widely recognized origin for gourmet chocolate. In this episode, Sam talks about experiencing “chocolate withdrawal syndrome” when traveling as a French youth to Japan, the kismet timing of meeting his co-founder on a jungle trek in Vietnam, and the frustrations of organic certification processes.
