About Us

What We Do

Arctic Choc was established in Espoo, Finland in December 2014. We specialize in handmade organic chocolates which are made from as pure ingredients as possible, without any harmful additives or preservatives.

We like experimenting with flavors and therefore there will always be some very unique chocolate fillings – we recommend you to be broad minded and try the most unusual chocolate flavors you will find in our assortment!

How We Do

All our chocolates and sweets are handmade and this way we can guarantee each products’ 100% quality, look and flavor. We only use organic and the most purest and freshest ingredients there are available. Our confectionery’s shelf life is around three to eight weeks; this guarantees that our products are always fresh and therefore the flavors are at their very best!

Our Values

The quality of our ingredients is the key to the successful flavors. We always aim to use natural, pure and above all Finnish ingredients whenever possible. Finnish nature and different seasonal ingredients will always be one source of our inspiration throughout the year.

What Is Organic Chocolate?

The most important difference between so called ‘standard’ and organic chocolate is, that the cacao trees or beans have not been treated with any harmful chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers. The trees are let to grow in their favorite place, in a shade and therefore the organic cacao farming is based mainly on crop rotation.  Our organic chocolate also supports the principles of fair trade so its’ ethical origin.

There are no harmful additives or preservatives, or anything that doesn’t belong into chocolate. Just the different techniques and locations when it comes to growing the cacao trees will affect on the final taste of the product. Therefore we could also argue that organic chocolate is much smoother and just few bites will satisfy your taste buds!

About Our Chocolate

All our chocolate is organic. Our cocoa beans grow in West Africa in Cote D’Ivoire and in Madagascar island just outside Africa. The cocoa beans are then being sent to Europe to our chocolate mass makers and after that it is sent to us. We then make the final chocolate products by hand by using the purest and highest quality ingredients available. Our chocolate supports the ‘Growing Great Chocolate’-program, that aims to the following:

Growing Cocoa Quality

The farmers are being taught how to take better care of the plantations, soil and cocoa trees. They are also being taught more about i.e. fermentation and drying the beans.

Growing Quality of Life

To improve the life of the local people, farmers and their families. This makes it possible to access the health care, education and clean water. The use of child labor in cacao farms is being reduced by educating the young adults and children.

Growing Farmer Income

All cocoa trading is being done without any middlemen so that the farmers receive a fair amount of money for their beans.
