Radical Transparency

Know your food. Know your ingredients.

Ingredients

We believe chocolate should delight us body, mind and spirit. To that end we handcraft our organic artisan dark chocolates from fresh, all natural ingredients, prefer single origin chocolate-one variety of chocolate harvested in one region, use only organic, fair and direct trade cacao and source the freshest, most ethically and sustainable grown ingredients for our chocolates, buying locally whenever possible.

Process

We believe in transforming simple, pure ingredients into food for your body, heart and mind so we slow cook our organic syrups from fresh fruits, candy our own citrus zests, never add artificial ingredients of any kind and strongly believe that fresh is best, so our chocolates contain no preservatives. Our chocolates are organic, non GMO, gluten free and preservative free.

Founder

Anita Pluymen has spent a lifetime creating food to nourish the body and feed the soul. Her views on food are simple – we should know what we’re eating and what it can do for us, and we should be able to implicitly trust in the ingredients of the food we eat. “I am humbled and inspired to come to work every day with the mission of creating food that matters.”

Get in touch

Hi, I’m Anita, the founder and chocolatier at Mia Chocolates. I’m humbled and inspired to come to work every day to pursue my passion of creating food that heals, soothes and nurtures others. I have worked in and around food for more than 30 years, but discovered that chocolate is my art form. I design my dark chocolates based on sensory memories. Embedded in each of Mia bon bons, barks, brittles and bars, is a story that reflects what it means to me to be human and to be alive. It is the journey of life expressed in flavor.
