Quick Bites: Culture choc

MIA is short for ‘Made in Africa’


This new bean-to-bar chocolate range is sure to make even the Easter Bunny’s ears perk up.

Short for ‘Made in Africa’, MIA is in the tiny 1 per cent of brands whose bars are made entirely on the continent which produces 70 per cent of the world’s cocoa. Roasting, shelling, grinding, tempering and even packaging, the entire process takes place under one roof in Madagascar.


And what’s good news for local suppliers is even better news for chocolate lovers here as the range of nine vegan bars is now available in Donnybrook Fair stores in Dublin and Wicklow, as well as online from proudlymadeinafrica.org.

Priced €3.99-€4.99, the award-winning chocolate bars — also found in select health food stores such as Nice & Natural Health, Cavan — include Dark Chocolate, Candied Orange, Cranberry & Hazelnut. For more information and a full list of stockists go to miafoodie.com or follow @miaflavour.
