MILK MARALUMI BAR rewarded by the Club des Croqueurs de Chocolat
during the 2015 Chocolate Show in Paris


The milk Maralumi bar is a Plantation chocolate : the strictly selected cocoa beans all come from the Maralumi Plantation, located on the Island of Papua - New Guinea in the Pacific Ocean. Situated on the eastern end of the island, just south of the Equator, the Maralumi plantation benefits from a moist equatorial climate and soil that is rich in alluvia, making the area ideal for growing cocoa trees. The ‘Maralumi’, the ‘river spirits’, watch over the plantation that is called after them. The Maralumi plantation produces high quality cocoa beans of the trinitario variety. All the different steps from harvesting to drying, including graining and fermentation, do meet rigorous specifications.  This bar is appreciated for its high content of cocoa (47%) and for its smooth texture with hints of dark caramel and grilled bouquet. The cocoa beans from the Maralumi Plantation are also used for producing a 64% dark chocolate, which tangy notes of red fruits are most appreciated. 5 other Plantation chocolates exist in our collection : Mokaya (Mexico), Dark and Milk Mangaro (Madagascar), Los Anconès (Santo Domingo) and  Vila Gracinda (Sao Tomé). They are on sale in the Cluizel shops and at our retailers’. More than just a single-origin chocolate, which is produce using beans from a particular region or several plantations, our Plantation Chocolate is produced using beans selected from a single plantation. The outstanding quality of the beans and the painstaking work of the planters guarantee the superb quality of these unique chocolates.
