Chocolate Naive cover
Mission Chocolate Naive is all about humanity, hard work and big dreams of a small man, which sometimes come true at the most unexpected time and in the most unexpected of places.

BUILDING A COMMUNITY

Chocolate Naive are proponents of the slow food movement, so a large amount of the ingredients used to produce our chocolate or ice cream are collected within a ten kilometer radius. This builds cooperation with local farmers, who then get their share of the revenues. Furthermore, the company does a great deal to employ talented locals.

YOUTH EMPLOYMENT AND EDUCATION

In 2011 Sabina and her mother Christina joined the team at Chocolate Naive. After the loss of her father, the bread winner of the family of seven, she had been fighting for survival for nearly two years. Chocolate Naive employed the two ladies and provided them with English language lessons and vocational training courses. Paying fair wages gives them the chance to to diminish a pile of debtsleft to them by their late father.

SUSTAINABILITY

Moletai district is the most unspoilt in Lithuania. Chocolate Naive believes that a clean environment and serenity is the fifth element of our chocolate. Naive cultivates its own gardens full of herbs and fruits which are used in the production. The milk used in Naive ice cream comes from its own dairy farm and the eggs come from free-range chicken from local farmers.

TRANSPARENCY

Naive is one of the most open manufactures in Lithuania. The company cares about establishing a link between the producer and the customer, therefore it is not a coincidence that a lot of attention is paid to educational and sampling events. Our open-door policy has resulted in a growing interest in Naive and brought to Giedraiciai people from all walks of life, from children, foodies to Rotary club members.

CREATIVITY

Creativity is Chocolate Naive’s middle name. With parsley flavored ice cream or chocolate with salt among its products, Naive is famous for its gastronomical adventures. Naive
Description Chocolate Naive is a bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturer set in the center of Europe – a stunning corner of Lithuania. At Chocolate Naive, one of only 150 such producers worldwide, the production cycle starts with a dried cacao bean. Top class cacao beans are diligently selected from exceptional farms. They are then transported via the old seaways to Europe and, finally, to Lithuania, home of Chocolate Naive.

At Chocolate Naive we follow two key principles. First, we only work with the best ingredients in the world. Secondly, we seek to become world-class craftsmen in working with this type of exquisite production. Naive roasts, winnows, conches and tempers chocolate in ways that help to reveal the character of a particular region, be it Peru, Madagascar, Nicaragua, Venezuela or Java.

The chocolate is finally born after a meticulous analysis of taste, colour, smell and texture. For some time already our products have put Lithuania on the foodie map as a rising star of gourmet chocolate in Europe.

But this project, however, is not about arrogance and recognition, is all about soul. Chocolate Naive belongs to humanity, hard work and the big dreams of a small man, which sometimes come true at the most unexpected time and in the most unexpected of places.
