Luchie Suguitan’s journey to co-founding Co-Chocolat with her sister Eman began with a quest for healthy chocolates. Disappointed by the lack of options during their travels, they ventured to the Philippines to study cacao farming. Their experience led to the establishment of OPM in 2016, supporting Filipino cacao farmers.

Today, with the support of 42 impact investors from various countries, Luchie and Eman continue to champion fine cocoa and healthy chocolates through Co-Chocolat. Their dedication to sourcing premium ingredients and promoting sustainable farming practices has not only elevated the chocolate-making process but also created a community-driven brand focused on delivering exceptional taste and nutritional value. Co-Chocolat’s chocolates are crafted in micro-batches, ensuring each piece is a testament to quality and care.

By sourcing beans from small-holding farmers who take pride in their produce, the brand not only supports local communities but also ensures the premium quality of its chocolates. With a commitment to transparency and traceability, Co-Chocolat invites consumers to not only indulge in delicious treats but also to support a sustainable and socially responsible chocolate-making process.
