Have anyone heard of the chocolate company Weinrich? I Understand that they are famous for producing liquor and organic chocolate? Anyone else have other information on the company?

Dear Masur

thanks for the website. But the information provided is very limited. Can you please tell me what are their speciality? And how's their quality of chocolate? Are they well distributed in Europe?

Although I have never had Weinrich personally, it should be noted that they get all their cocoa beans from Ghana. This essentially means that they only make chocolates from cocoa beans of the 'bulk variety,' so I wouldn't expect too much.

I noticed that they have a line of organic chocolates which could be very interesting... though probably quite harsh in taste unless they take the easy way out by dutching (i.e. stripping away chocolate's soul and dignity)

Anyone ever tasted any of their standard dark chocolate that could comment?

I've tried "Fairena Bio Noir Orange" a fair trade bar from Gepa/Weinrich. It's ok for an organic bar but nothing more. I you like orange flavour it's worth a try. Weinrich also is a subcontractor to The Day Company (Divine Chocolate). They produce Divine Chocolate fair trade bars with beans from Ghana and the cooperative Kuapa Kokoo. The Day Chocolate Company is owned by Twin Trading, Kuapa Kokoo in Ghana and The Body Shop.

Thanks for the comments so far. What about their distribution? Are they widely distributed in Europe and the USA? From what i read on the forum, they are mostly OEM manufacturer for other chocolate company>? But from the website, they have a long histroy in the brands they own. This is quite confusing. Can anyone explain to me?

lee, all i can say is that they are widely distributed in germany, or at least in bavaria. however i have only come across their vivani and gepa/fairena bars so far. these can be found in most organic food stores.
the vivani (www.vivani.de) 72% is a fair organic bar. good to munch and inexpensive, but not something you'd want every day. for more info on this bar see the review in the chocopaedia.
i've also tried the 85% gepa and it is seriously awful, something to chuck in the trash bin.
