In a kitchen during COVID-19 lockdown, artisan African chocolate brand De Villiers Chocolate created from scratch a sugar free and dairy free range of sustainably sourced chocolate. The range of plant-based chocolate does not cause any negative reactions, such as blood sugar or insulin spikes and gastrointestinal side effects, and is also Rainforest Alliance and KETO certified, as well as registered with the Vegan Society. 

This makes the chocolate safe for people with diabetes, those on a vegan or the ketogenic diet, and anyone looking for a healthier chocolate alternative. With a unique palate and texture, De Villiers Chocolate's range of sugar free and dairy free chocolate is available in a number of flavors, including dark chocolate and various nut butters, including almond, cashew, and hazelnut.

De Villiers Chocolate crafts its chocolate in a small artisan factory in Cape Town consisting of custom-built machines. As the first bean to bar chocolate maker in South Africa, De Villiers Chocolate is one of a handful of companies to produce premium chocolate on the African continent. All of the company's chocolate is made with cocoa beans sourced sustainably from the region of Bundibugyo in Western Uganda and proudly carries the Rainforest Alliance certification.
