The residents of the Toratau geopark – the creators of “Artisan chocolate from Bashkiria” have started their crowdfunding campaign. In 50 days they have to meet an ambitious goal of 750 thousand rubles in order to partially fund their future chocolate store in Sterlitamak.
Поддержать проект «Живой шоколад из какао-бобов по рецептам ацтеков» можно на Boomstarter.
The contributions of the “crowd” are in no way donations, they receive rewards: from a natural chocolate bar to a two-day trip around the natural landmarks of the republic – the Bashkirira national park and the Toratau geopark.
According to Marina Grigorieva, co-founder and chocolatier of the project, the boutique will have tasting and sales zones, master classes for making products, as well as a demonstration line so that everyone can personally be convinced that the production is natural.
It should be noted that “Artisan chocolate from Bashkiria” won a special award of the non-commercial project “Products of Bashkortostan” and is a resident of the Toratau geopark. The authors of the project were the first in the republic to produce chocolate based on Bashkir honey and chocolates filled with local ingredients - berries, farm goat cheeses, collections of Bashkir herbs and balsams, and even pine cones from mountainous regions. The product is 100% organic, produced in a gentle artisan way from natural highly aromatic cocoa beans and cane sugar.
