The word "raaka "is Finnish and it means "raw". Despite the name, the company doesn't have any Finnish origins or connections, but the cadence of the word and its meaning capture the essence of chocolate and the process of it's making. When Raaka's people make chocolate they're after something that feels the way Raaka sounds: strong, wild, playful, and most of all, different. The team is a bunch of unserious people who take our chocolate seriously. The brand was built around one simple idea: to make delicious, creative chocolate that showcases the wilder side of cacao and do so in a way that is as environmentally and socially responsible as possible. Raaka Chocolate is from Brooklyn - the cradle of the craft-everything movement - and it makes the trendiest raw chocolate in the world.
