Why Choose Us?

GAWAYMBANHA! That’s Welcome in the Australian Aboriginal Wiradjuri Language. 

Chocolate on Purpose® is a 100% Indigenous Australian owned business.

Chocolate on Purpose® actively supports Aboriginal Sustainable Farming by sourcing our Australian Native Fruit & Nuts - Bush Foods - from Indigenous Communities around Australia.

Chocolate on Purpose® actively supports the Australian Charity "Aussie Helpers" by donating 10₡ of every bag sold to help them support Australian Farmers suffering in what is currently Australia's worst drought on record.

Chocolate on Purpose® use the finest Belgian chocolate giving you a real melt-in-the-mouth, smooth, pure-tasting chocolate experience.

Our chocolate contains Cocoa Butter, which provides health benefits & anti-oxidant properties. Most chocolate manufacturers remove the Cocao Butter and sell it to the cosmetic industry, where it is highly prized for it's antioxidant and emollient properties. These chocolate manufacturers then replace the Cocao Butter with preservatives, saturated fats and oils (increasingly using palm oil), resulting in that plastic texture, greasy film & bitter taste on the palate you experience with a lot of the chocolate you are buying at the moment. But never fear... Chocolate On Purpose® is here! Our chocolate will NOT disappoint you as it's the real deal with real taste and it's real good!

Choosing Chocolate on Purpose® means you not only choose great chocolate taste, you also choose to support cocoa farmers in West Africa and of every pack you purchase, part is reinvested in farmer training and community projects – in partnership with the Cocoa Horizons Foundation.

Chocolate on Purpose® use Aromatic Profiling to create Original and Unique fusions of chocolate & Australian native plant-based aromatics. This results in chocolate flavour combinations with a depth of flavour that is truly a "chocolicious taste of Australia" and which you are not going to find anywhere else.

Chocolate on Purpose® creations are supported by scientific data showing Dark Chocolate and Australian Native Bush Foods are actually functional foods with real health benefits, such as preventing Oxidation (which ages every cell in our bodies).

Cacao, the chocolate bean, is packed with healthy chemicals like flavonoids and theobomine, making this little bean a disease killing bullet!

Australian Native Plants comprise superior antioxidant capacity, as compared to other Superfood fruits like blueberry.

Oxidative stress causes disease and Cacao & Australian Native plants have been scientifically proven to prevent this.

Chocolate On Purpose® customers enjoy double health benefits! It's no wonder our Chocolate creations are known as "Yumminess with Benefits".
