We Care About Our Ingredients

Photo of roasted cocoa beans
Cacao roasting

We create the delightful cacao aroma by carefully pairing our selection of cacao beans with the proper roasting techniques.

Photo of vanilla beans

Made from the highest quality vanilla beans, we source our premium vanilla extract from Madagascar.

Photo of Milk

Our carefully selected rich, raw milk blended with cacao creates an unforgettably smooth, balanced flavor.

We Support Farmers and Families in Ghana

We ethically and sustainably source premium cacao beans used in Meiji Milk Chocolate primarily from the Republic of Ghana, the world's second-largest cacao producer. Meiji has supported independent Ghanaian cocoa farmers and their children for more than ten years through donations that help build clean water wells, establish seedling centers, and provide art and chocolate-making classes.
