welcome to chocolate nirvana
Denman Island Chocolate, established 1998
Canada's original organic chocolate company.
We have been making chocolate with the ﬁnest organic ingredients for over 22 years - bittersweet chocolate blended with a wild and wonderful selection of delicious ingredients: toasted hazelnuts, dark roasted espresso beans, candied ginger, tangy dried raspberries and cherries, pure essential oils, coconut milk, chipotle chili powder … and more. Denman Island Chocolate bars are made with organic ethically traded chocolate with a high (63% or 72%) cocoa mass content. This makes for a more intense, less sweet ﬂavour that is rich and clean. Our chocolate is available at your favourite local store across Canada, and we also ship to you, direct from Denman Island.
denman island chocolate - we bring the goodness
Denman Island Chocolate was founded on the principle that everyone can make a positive change in the world. We are lucky enough to be able to do our part, and to do it deliciously. We bring the goodness.
We use organic chocolate made for us in Europe. It has a signature smoothness, along with a cocoa richness not found in other bars. To our chocolate we add the finest, ethically sourced ingredients. We make a lot of flavours with a lot of interesting ingredients. What we don’t use is palm oil, GMOs, animal products, waxes, salt, preservatives, or artiﬁcial ingredients of any kind. Our chocolate is also soy, corn, peanut and gluten free.
As well as creating goodness in our chocolate, we are also committed to sharing that goodness with the world around us. Every year Denman Island Chocolate donates at least 1% of our gross income to local groups that support environmental conservation. So far that’s over $100,000! Our activism focus these days lies in our unique fundraiser bars (like our Orca Coconut bar) produced to support specific conservation campaigns financially and through raising awareness. And we create goodness directly right in our neighbourhood. Our beautiful chocolate factory in the woods was designed and built with eco-sustainability in mind. There is always more good work to do and we are committed to doing it.
our orca bar
We are thrilled to announce the unveiling of our newest bar: Orca Coconut! It’s a dark chocolate 63% cocoa mass bar with shredded coconut. So yummy. Where, you’re wondering, does the orca come into it? Well, following in the footsteps of our Pull Together and Grizzly bars, this is another of our fundraiser bars. This one will benefit Georgia Strait Alliance’s Orcas Can’t Wait campaign to help save the extremely endangered southern killer whale population. We’ll be donating $5 for every case of 24 bars sold and, unlike our previous fundraising bars, the Orca Coconut bars will be on offer permanently because the threat to these magnificent animals is so acute that they will need help for many years to come.
