Maliolio is one of eight plantations on 635 hectares of land owned and operated by MAVA S.A. This former state-owned property is partly owned by Chocolaterie Robert an entirely Malagsy operation owned by the Ramanadraibe family. This family actively contributed to the post-colonial economic and industrial revival of the island. One of the members Madam Hanta Rajaonera leads the farmers on the plantations.
All cacao trees are grown organically in a traditional agroforestry system. Much of which is produced is used by Chocolaterie Robert for their single plantation chocolate bars.

Post Harvesting Process

Soft elegant body with a bright citrus acidity; notes of citrus and white fruit, slight yellow and red fruits, soft herbals and a roasted almond finish.
