We are proud to have created one of the only bars ever sweetened using only Manuka Honey. Savory and buttery Haiti PISA cacao pairs with a strong floral and fruity UMF 5+ New Zealand Manuka Honey. Tasting notes include Apricot, Vanilla, Green Banana, and Pine.
Honey used is from new Zealand - a monofloral Manuka Honey with 5+ UMF (Unique Manuka Factor). The higher the UMF, the higher the antimicrobial potency. This honey is raw and incredibly unique in floral, herbaceous, and fruit tasting notes.
Bringing an accessible and bold flavor to the cacao world isn’t the only thing Produits Des Iles SA (PISA) is doing. PISA launched their centralized processing facility in 2014, which was a revolutionary change for the way the cacao industry worked in Haiti, offering the first high quality Haitian cacao to the US market. Through private sector innovation, PISA partnered with farmers to give them what they really needed: pricing transparency, a consistent market, and an elimination of risk. Today, PISA still provides smallholder farmers access to the specialty cacao market by purchasing wet cacao, centrally fermenting it, and selling it at a higher price for its higher quality. PISA is poised to bring affordable organic beans to the craft chocolate market with an approachable flavor profile of classic chocolate, blueberries, caramel, and vanilla. We partner with PISA to support systems change and reduce structural inequities in Haiti, while acknowledging that the end goal for economic justice has yet to be met and will require long-term partnership across the chocolate value chain.
