More information

Elfi and Maxime are the founders of the Qantu chocolate brand. They travel throughout Latin America in search of the purest cocoa flavours. They criss-cross the plantations in search of native cocoa beans with exceptional aromas to create chocolates that will surprise your taste buds.

The Qantu adventure began in 2014, when they visited a plantation in Alto El Sol (Peru). There they discovered the passion and pride of the producers for cocoa and decided to explore the world of cocoa. This is how Elfi and Maxime discovered the concept of 'Bean-to-Bar' chocolate. This very special chocolate is full of flavours that are as powerful as they are varied, leaving plenty of room for exploration and creativity. And the duo have more than one string to their bow: Elfi comes from a cocoa-producing country (Peru) and Maxime from a chocolate-consuming country (Canada)!

In the summer of 2016, the first cocoa beans were on their way to be imported. It wasn't an easy start, but through perseverance, the Qantu bars won two gold and silver medals at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in London in June 2017. Since then, they have continued to create award-winning bars and to amaze us with their creativity, like with an unclassifiable Palo Santo wood-smoked chocolate.

The choice of the name Qantu is not insignificant. It refers to the first place where the two founders met, and is therefore a powerful symbol for them. In fact, it's the name of the national flower of Peru and Bolivia, originally from the Peruvian Andes.
