About Ombar Chocolate:

First established in 2007, when our founder Richard started experimenting with raw cacao in his kitchen at home, and now stocked in major retailers and sold in 14 countries, at Ombar we’re on a mission to redefine chocolate. We’re introducing people to the incredible superfood powers of cacao, through delicious-tasting chocolate that’s better for our bodies and for the planet. We source our organic and fair-trade cacao directly from farmer’s cooperatives in Ecuador and then make it into bars and buttons at our bespoke Cambridge chocolate factory. Unlike most chocolate, which is made by roasting cacao at high heat, ours goes through a low-temp process to keep it choc-full of the nutrients and rich flavour that nature intended. It’s important to us that everyone can enjoy our wonderful chocolate, so it’s always vegan, and free from gluten and refined sugar.
