About cocoa

You've probably eaten plenty of chocolate before without even stopping for a moment to think about where it comes from. 

Cocoa beans like the ones pictured above are the primary ingredient of chocolate.  Cocoa beans are actually the seeds of the cocoa tree known as 'Theobroma Cacao'.  Theobroma literally means 'food of the gods'.

You may be surprised to learn that the chocolate you buy from your local supermarket is not made from Australian cocoa.  All chocolate made in Australia uses imported cocoa beans from third world countries, that is until Daintree Estates came along.

Daintree Estates chocolate is
the first commercially produced chocolate to be made from
cocoa beans grown in Australia.

Our cocoa plantations are located in the Mossman area north of Cairns in Far North Queensland, right alongside the world famous Daintree Rainforest. where climatic and environmental conditions are just right for growing cocoa.
