At Willie’s Cacao, our customers know that, the focus is always on the quality and the purity of the ingredients in the chocolate. Simplicity is key and ancient processes are used to celebrate the natural flavours while enhancing the taste of the cocoa bean, without needing artificial or synthetic ingredients to do so.
As Willie uses the minimum amount of ingredients needed to create his delectable chocolate, in order for the single estate cacao to shine, a lot of Willie’s Cacao products are naturally vegan.
Here’s a quick summary of our best selling vegan chocolate and gifts, along with a few recipes so you can find what you need for your dietary needs with ease. There is no soya lecithin, and no palm oil, while many products have just a few ingredients, namely cacao and natural raw cane sugar, making them suitable for people with allergies.

Those of you who followed Willie on his journey on Channel 4, through Willie’s Wonky Chocolate Factory and The Chocolate Revolution will be familiar with the 100% Cacao cylinders, Willie’s signature product.
