Collection: Menakao

Five generations ago, the Cassam Chenaï family of India settled in the Gujrat region of Madagascar. They created and traded postcards, textiles and finally spices, which were intended solely for export. Over time, Shahin Cassam Chenaï broke away from the growing family and started his own company.

Menakao is the work of women and men from Madagascar

It goes without saying that they wanted to illustrate their chocolate bars with the faces of different ethnic groups that represent the Malagasy people and make up the wealth of Madagascar. The Tanala, the Betsimisaraka, the Mahafaly, the Antanosy, the Bara or the Merina are all represented in their traditional headdresses and dresses. Shahin Cassam Chenaï, would like to remind of the first commercial activities of his family, who sold postcards at the beginning of the 19th century.

MENA means red in Malagasy

Red like the color of the earth, rich in minerals and sediments deposited by the Sambirano River, red like the color of the cocoa pods that come from the best producers in the Sambirano Valley, and red like the color of chocolate.

KAO for cocoa

The cocoa beans come from the best cooperatives in the Sambirano Valley (Ambanja region). They develop their recipes by giving preference to local products (100% of the ingredients are from Madagascar) and premium cocoa beans.
