We are Tilda & Cacao. We believe in creating positive change for each other and the planet, one chocolate at a time.
After spending more than a decade building our careers in Sydney, in 2016 we became parents to our daughter Rosie.
How our everyday choices impact each other and the planet was an important lesson we wanted to teach Rosie, so we began to think about ways we could put this into practice.
In early 2020 our family moved from Sydney's Northern Beaches to Gerringong on the NSW South Coast. Once we settled into our new home, the Tilda & Cacao journey began.
Sarah had always wanted to turn her creative outlet into an ethical and sustainable business, bringing together learnings from the past 14 years as a pastry chef and chocolatier.
We started to plan our vision for the business and brand, Tilda & Cacao. We named Tilda & Cacao eponymously after our daughter and our inspiration, Rosie Tilda.
One priority included sourcing suppliers, growers and producers who would ensure sustainability across the entire chain from bean to bar without compromising on quality.
Sarah spent the first COVID-19 lockdown perfecting our first batch of unique flavours available now: Tropical Oasis, Rainforest Rarity, Hand & Wild Harvest and Plain & Simple 80%.
It has been an exciting ride so far, and we are thrilled to introduce Tilda & Cacao to the world.
Our vision is for Tilda & Cacao to reflect our passion and the way we live our everyday life. Our family believes in ethical living: we care about our environment and our community.
We work with those who share our values, and they guide us on each step of our journey.
We believe that care for the earth and care for ourselves and humankind are interdependent and mutually inclusive.
We believe that our daily choices and actions make a difference. We strive to do the "right" thing, so we are part of the solution and not the problem.
We create chocolate using raw organic Criollo cacao sourced from UTZ Certified Organic farmers in Peru.
Our chocolate is plant-based, vegan friendly and free from additives, gluten and refined sugar. We source our ingredients from sustainable and ethical growers and producers in Australia and around the world.
The Tilda & Cacao launch range includes native Australian inclusions, such as finger lime, Davidson Plum and macadamia nuts.
