Birdsnake are a bean to bar company, based in Fairﬁeld, Melbourne. Bean to bar is a small but growing market in Australia. This means that they roast cacao seeds, and then process them into chocolate in house as opposed to sourcing pre made liquor from overseas.
Because of this, they have more control over the flavour of the bars they produce, and know where the beans came from, who produced them, the process during the production and most importantly, how much the producer was paid.
There are serious problems with the Cacao industry. At Birdsnake Chocolate, the goal is to assist by sourcing cacao from producers they have direct communication with, and paying them a much more motivating price that is not related to the commodity market.
Their aim is to grow and eventually be able to work with more and more producers, and oﬀer a delicious alternative to cheap, non-ethically sourced chocolate.
