The ‘Red Island’, Madagascar, brings cocoa with a unique flavour. Chocolatiers know why they choose Madagascan beans over and over again. The island has been producing cocoa since the beginning of the past century and belongs to the international top. Shahin Cassam Chenai started his own chocolate brand in 2005. The brand name brings together two iconic characteristics of Madagascar: red and cocoa. Meaning mena and kao Malagasy. Manakau is a true local product. From bean to bar, the complete production process gets done on Madagascar. Cassam Chenai selected the beans from the Domaine Millot for his bars. A plantation that counts more than hundred years. Menakao is local and fair. All farmers receive 37% more than the Fair Trade price. Menakao is proud of its roots and people and the packaging shows that.
