A chocolate premiere: a dark, fine chocolate produced from the very first organic and fair trade cocoa in Madagascar!

Cocoa from Madagascar is in great demand worldwide. It is also rare, as Madagascar produces the best African cocoa by a mile. Finally now, this wonderful island's noble cocoa is available in organic and fair trade quality, and we, having waited for an eternity, are the first ones to get our hands on it.

This cocoa is cultivated in the legendary Sambirano Valley, Madagascar's main cocoa growing region, where there are a few big plantations, but also many small cocoa farms. We buy our cocoa beans from the COPROCASA Cooperative, a union of 170 small farms. The cocoa is grown in volcanic soil, thriving in the island's tropical and humid climate, and is a mixture of 20% Criollo, the world's finest cocoa bean, 60% Trinitario and 20% Forastero. An exquisite combination, which we gently roast in our bean to bar manufactory, then conche for a relatively short time in order to produce a very distinctive single origin 75% chocolate. It boasts a strong note of terroir with the cocoa bean's typical range of fruity flavours as well as possessing hints of citrus, red berries and a pleasing acidity accompanied by a little sweetness, courtesy of raw cane sugar.

Zotter produces individual chocolate for individual people who savour each moment. The diversified Zotter assortment is a reference to the biological variety. “The assortment is nothing but a small extract of what the cocoa bean with its countless aromatic components renders possible in terms of biological diversity.”


The inventor Josef Zotter has constantly invested in his products. He has been involved in fair trade since 2004, in 2005 his company converted to organic and in 2006 he opened his own Chocolate Factory. For this reason he is throughout Europe the only manufacturer who produces chocolates starting from the bean (bean-to-bar) exclusively in organic and fair quality!


Josef Zotter has succeeded in transforming the world of chocolates. With the hand-scooped chocolates the creative chocolate maker from Riegersburg has managed to upset our familiar view of the world of chocolate. Bacon Bits in chocolate, Pumpkin Seeds with Marzipan and Apples and Carrots with Ginger surrounded by chocolate. The chocolate revolution started: novel flavour combinations, a new format, art as packaging and the transformation of delicacies into green food. In 2012 the hand-scooped chocolates were celebrating their 20th anniversary. More than 20 years of chocolate history filled with a tremendous amount of creations, crazy ideas and the rebellion against the mainstream.


Bean-to-bar – from the bean to the chocolate Since the opening of the Chocolate Factory Josef Zotter has ranked among the few quality chocolate makers around the world whose chocolate production processes are located under the same roof: From the roasting of the cocoa beans via the rolling up to the finishing touches in the conching plant everything is carried out with a high degree of sensitivity. In this way Zotter clearly positions himself against standardized mass production and the concentration of the chocolate market. In his Chocolate Factory there is no run-of-the-mill processing. The entire manufacturing process becomes transparent and tangible for visitors in the Chocolate Theatre. Zotter even was invited to the renowned Harvard University and his company is the only Austrian company included as part of the students’ curriculum as a case study.
