Our Zazubean adventure started on a pedal-powered excursion of a group of women to an island off the coast of British Columbia, Canada. Funny enough, the entire group managed to pack their fave chocolate to keep their energies and spirits high for the demanding journey! A conversation sparked surrounding quality chocolate, including a prevalent question: Could a chocolate out there swear by ethical standards, and be both healthy and crazy yummy? After returning home from the cycling expedition, Tiz — Zazubean co-founder — inspired by the quest, began formulating an amazing high-quality chocolate with super powered ingredients. As a physiologist, Tiz was interested in pushing the boundaries of traditional chocolate to develop nutritionally dense recipes that support an active balanced lifestyle. Tara, fellow co-founder & serious chocophile, joined forces with her passion for social justice and expertise in sustainable business development to bring Zazubean to life! This powerhouse team had the perfect balance to create their uncompromisingly delicious, fairly traded, organic chocolate bars that are good for the planet, good for the growers and good for you!
We are a women owned business based out of Vancouver, BC. All of Zazubean chocolates are 100% Organic, Fair-trade certified, gluten-free, soy-free, mostly vegan, kosher certified, with clean ingredients and Paleo and Keto options. We offer something for all diets and personalities with fun packaging that is 100% recycling. Our Fair-trade premiums we pay for our cocoa beans, sugar, vanilla and cocoa butter are so important for the farmers in these communities to help pay for schooling, infrastructure and business development. We strive to be Good for the Planet, Good for the Growers, and Good for You!
