The Philippines hides an amazing and delicious secret: this country produces some really excellent chocolate that truly dazzles one’s taste senses! Enter Auro Choco, a brand that infuses colorful Filipino culture in their products!
The Gold Standard
Auro Chocolates first started as a collaboration between two Filipinos, Mark Ocampo and Kelly Go. Coming from different backgrounds but sharing an intense love of chocolates, these two entrepreneurs decided to pool their resources, learn more on sweet treats, and create an amazing brand. Taking a risk to go back to their home country (both were based in the United States), these two young risk takers worked against all odds to create this global success of a brand.
In fact, the name itself of the brand spelled success. Au is the chemical symbol found in the periodic table for gold; Oro the Filipino and Spanish translation for gold. This high standard can be seen on their products, which combines taste and quality in nice packages.
