Jacqueline Jacek is the world’s first Cocoanista; a fusion between a Fashionista & a Chocolatier. A Cocoanista applies the principles of haute couture in the creation of artisan chocolates. These principles include expression through shape & colour (and the additional dimension of flavour in chocolate), intricate construction, innovative technique and the use of the highest quality components to create truly exceptional works of art.
Yes. JACEK Chocolate Couture only sources chocolate from the best chocolate makers around the world (Valrhona & Cacao Barry) who are committed to empowering cacao farmers to improve their incomes, who are active in supporting industry programs that aim at eradicating abusive child labor, and who have ecological sustainability in mind.
We are particularly proud of having our own Bean-to-Bar Chocolate where we ethically source cocoa beans directly from the farmers and make our own chocolate. Check out our latest video from our visit to the farms and fermentation centre in the Dominican Republic and see for yourself the joyful journey of how we make chocolate from the bean to the bar at JACEK.
Please keep your chocolate in a cool (16-18C), dry environment; away from heat and direct sunlight.
Yes, we do. Please have a look at our vegan chocolate product line in our Online Shop.
Our products do not contain gluten in the recipe, however, we are not a certified gluten-free facility, so you will find gluten listed as an allergen in the "May contain" statement on all our packaging.
None of our products contain peanuts, however, some may contain tree nuts. You will find an allergen statement and a link to a detailed ingredients list in the description of each product in the online shop.
