What is Nanga?
In Hindi, Nanga means naked, and it's how we make our chocolates - true to the natural world and using only the highest quality organic ingredients. In addition Nanga is the name of one of the world's tallest peaks, Nanga Parbat, or Naked Mountain. Inspired by this picturesque giant we seek to embody the spirit of the mountain in everything we do, so we like our chocolate in the buff - pure wholesome life nourishing ingredients, and nothing else! We are naked chocolate.
We source our ingredients responsibly to support the health of our planet and everyone on it, using only organic or wild-crafted, plus fairly traded ingredients. Our line of snacking bark style chocolate is made using only non-gmo, organic, gluten free ingredients, as well as fair trade certified dark chocolate, vanilla, sugar, and tea and cocoa nibs. Through our continued support of Fair Trade USA and responsible sourcing of ingredients, each purchase of ChoNanga Chocolate Bark has an impact. From helping farmers get better prices, to educating rural children and keeping harmful pesticides out of the environment fair trade dollars go a long way. In addition we pledge 2% of our profits to organizations supporting our vision of a healthier planet, like the Sacred Valley Project which provides boarding and education to low income young women in rural Peru.
