In the Ben Tre province, cacao flourishes among lush coconut trees whose height provides shade for warmly spiced cacao with bright notes of green banana.
Arriving in Vietnam in the late 19th century, Ben Tre is the birthplace of cacao in Vietnam. Known also for the premium quality coconuts grown, the Ben Tre province is situated between the two main branches of Mekong Delta’s largest river. Barely above sea level, an abundance of fresh water and moist soil make a perfect setting for the growth of Trinitario cacao used to make this dark chocolate bar.
