The world of fine chocolate-making and pastries
Founded in 2011 by two Frenchmen living in Vietnam, Marou Chocolate is a testament to the sophisticated flavors that Vietnamese cacao beans offer to the world.
The founders Samuel Maruta and Vincent Mourou first crossed paths during a survival course weekend in the jungles of Vietnam. Later, intrigued by the cacao beans growing in Vietnam, the pair set course for a cacao farm in Ba Ria Province. When they found it, they quickly understood that they could make the great chocolate from this fine flavored cacao, which somehow remained hidden for over a century. On the ferry back to Ho Chi Minh City, decided to try their hand at chocolate making.
The unique taste and beautiful packaging of Marou bars have caught the attention of the international press and the foodie community. The company has achieved several accolades, including the Gold International Chocolate Awards, putting Vietnam on the world chocolate map. Henceforth, Marou Chocolate has stayed true to its origin of making dark chocolate entirely from Vietnam’s finest ingredients.
