Pana Chocolate is one of the fastest growing raw, organic chocolates in the world.
Since humble beginnings being delivered by hand on the back of Pana’s Vespa, it is now sold in over 25 countries, 3,000 outlets, Pana Chocolate shops and satellite stores globally. The company has almost doubled year-on-year since starting in July 2012. Founded in Australia by creator Pana Barbounis this unique, sustainable business does not compromise the planet or its people.
Pana grew up in a migrant family in the western suburbs of Melbourne, and after many years in hospitality at a young age, he was driven to learn and establish a business he had real passion for. After trying some raw chocolate from a friend, Pana became consumed by developing a chocolate that had the perfect taste, balanced with the right texture, regardless of being raw and vegan. There were a few non-negotiables – some of them making sure the product was made from organic ingredients with no refined sugar, and produced using minimal heat to ensure all the goodness was retained. Pana’s passion for organic produce, a vegan lifestyle, sustainability and penchant for artisanal crafts was certainly the inspiration behind Pana Chocolate’s creation.
Pana Chocolate is a moment of pure indulgence accompanied by the knowledge that you’re nourishing your body with beautiful ingredients sourced from around the world. Organic ingredients from producers who adhere to sustainable and fair trade practices and farmers who get the best value for their hard work. Think cacao powder from Bolivia and Dominican Republic, cacao butter from Peru, cinnamon from Sri Lanka, coconut from The Philippines and an abundance of delicious accompanying ingredients like nuts, goji berries, figs and pure 100% essential oils.
Pana Chocolate loves what’s within, as well as the earth it came from, using only recyclable and earth friendly packaging. Our sustainable development and production ethos carries through to its core. Over the last 3 years Pana Chocolate have planted over 22,000 trees in association with Wetland Care Australia and Landcare Australia and have committed to another 12,000 this year. A company that lives and breathes its motto “Love Your Insides. Love the Earth”.
Get your hands of one of these of handmade packages of love as this is the chocolate that keeps on giving. One bite. The whole bar. A guilty pleasure that's not so guilty after all.
