Maglio Chocolate


We produce our chocolate using sustainable ways
enhancing the small local cocoa farmers.
Starting several years, Maglio Chocolate (est.1875) has launched sustainable grown cocoa project directly into plantation, involving the community of cocoa farmers live there. Our mission is to enhance the work of smaller cocoa farmers, in order to sell it directly to chocolate makers without any intermediaries.
Venezuela is the land of great Criollos and it is here that we focus our quest, through the “ Maglio Criollo Cocoa of Venezuela” project, to offer our customers the “fine de aroma de cacao”.
More than eighty varieties of Criollos offer unique aromas: from Cuyagua to the Sur del Lago, Porcelana, Chuao, Boccadillo, Guasare, Cano el Tigre and many others.
Their fruity flavor and the sensuality of their aromas are the hallmarks of a peerless chocolate with a delicate, long-lasting taste.
About 5 years ago, Maglio Italian Chcocolate (est.1875) began “MAGLIO VENEZUELA CRIOLLO COCOA” , helping a small Cuyagua community, whose 50-hectare Criollo plantation had been completely abandoned because it was not protitable. We immediately realized that it was a plantation of extraordinary quality, with pure Criollo trees.
The project launched by Maglio Chocolate
it mainly concerns:
  1. Recovery of Criollo cocoa plantation
  2. helping the community to produce a cocoa of extraordinary quality, enriching the work of small farmers.
  3. sell the cocoa produced directly to chocolate makers without any intermediaries.
