In 2011 two Frenchmen, Samuel Maruta and Vincent Mourou (hence ‘Marou’) who call Vietnam home decided to create the purest dark chocolate from 100% locally sourced ingredients.
They combined their experience as French chocolate makers with the great cocoa origin of Southern Vietnam.
The beans themselves give each bar its unique and distinctive chocolate flavour. Family owned cocoa farms are the source of the cocoa, and Marou work closely with them to select the finest beans while paying above market rates.
With such purely crafted chocolate,Marou is rapidly gaining recognition with foodies, chefs and chocolate enthusiasts worldwide. Marou Chocolate has won several global chocolate awards with the most recent being at the Academy of Chocolate in London where it won three awards. See more at
