Standout Chocolate launched onto the craft chocolate scene in 2018. Fredrik Martinsson, Standout’s founder, has a background in engineering and specialty coffee, and he uses that experience and skillset to craft his award-winning chocolate in Kållered, Sweden. He sources his cocoa beans directly from co-operatives and farmers all over the world, aiming to create “a better world, through social, environmental and economic sustainability for the farmers.”

Maya Mountain Cacao (MMC) was founded in 2010 as Uncommon’s first origin project, and is majority-owned by Uncommon Cacao. It was the first specialty grade, high quality, fine flavor cacao out of Belize.

MMC sources from smallholder farmers in Southern Belize and centralizes the post-harvest processing, marketing, and export. The idea behind this new approach-- Centralized fermentation and drying, and buying wet cacao rather than dry cacao from farming families across the country - was not only to improve quality, but also to create higher prices and better value for farmers. This new model creates completely transparent business transactions and a true direct farm-to-consumer story for any chocolate manufacturer sourcing from Maya Mountain Cacao. MMC's control over the quality and post-harvest processing for the cacao allows the company to produce cacao beans of world class quality and cleanliness from smallholder farmers.

In this chocolate there are notes of cranberry, wild strawberry and citrus.
