Our story


Hello, we're Raaka

The word raaka means raw in Finnish. We claim no Finnish heritage, but the cadence of the word and its meaning capture the essence of our chocolate and our process. When we make chocolate we're after something that feels the way Raaka sounds: strong, wild, playful, and most of all, different. We are unserious people who take our chocolate seriously.

We're a strange bunch who all concur on one simple idea: We want to make delicious, creative chocolate that showcases the wilder side of cacao and do so in a way that is as environmentally and socially responsible as we can.

We make all our chocolate in Red Hook, Brooklyn at 64 Seabring Street. Come visit us if you're in town. There are no Oompa Loompas here, but there is plenty of chocolate to try (you cannot swim in it, sorry).
