ABOUT US

Jouvay Chocolate is made from Grenadian cocoa at the Diamond Chocolate Factory in Victoria, St Mark.

The word Jouvay (also spelled “j’ouvert”) is Grenadian patois. It comes from the French “jour ouvert,” or "dawning of a new day." At Jouvay, we are introducing a new day for chocolate making, reflecting our passion for exceptional quality, environmental sustainability, and economic fairness.

Jouvay is one of a handful of chocolate producers around the world that have set up large-scale production facilities in the island nation where our cocoa grows. But Jouvay is unique among these companies. That’s because we don’t just BUY from local cocoa farmers or WORK with local cocoa farmers, we ARE the local cocoa farmers.
 
To ensure that Grenada's unique, superior-tasting cocoa beans are transformed into unique, superior tasting chocolate, the island's cooperative of farmers partnered with renowned American chocolate maker, L.A. Burdick. Together, they formed a partnership that is committed to producing rich, delicious chocolate, while preserving Grenada's unique, diverse ecosystem.
 
As majority-owners of Jouvay, cocoa growers are able to benefit from the value-added processing, leading to greater economic security.
