Fu Wan specializes in bean-to-bar and tree-to-bar chocolates made from high-quality cacao pods grown locally in Taiwan. Fu Wan products combine cacao with signature Taiwanese aesthetics to produce freshly inspired and delicately charming flavors. Fu Wan chocolates are made to the highest standards of tree-to-bar production in Ping Tung County, where cacao trees have replaced betel nut palms. Warren Hsu, the founder of Fu Wan, is a tree-to-bar chocolate maker and an IICCT (International Institute of Chocolate and Cacao Testing) certified Level III Chocolate Taster.
Since it’s founding in 2015, Fu Wan has established many milestones in Taiwan’s cacao industry with its many recognitions and awards from organizations including the International Chocolate Awards (ICA) and the Academy of Chocolate (AOC).
While other brands (both non-bean-to-bar and bean-to-bar) acquire beans for hundreds of US dollars per tonne, Fu Wan’s environmental protection policies ensure that farmers are compensated at ten times the market price in order to absolutely safeguard sustainable practices among its suppliers. In addition, Fu Wan products are produced exclusively from fresh cocoa beans. All manufacturing begins therefore with fermentation. Each step of the process (fermentation, roasting, sorting, conching) is carried out to the strictest standards of hygiene and precision (including manual and automated temperature/humidity controls). As the only manufacturer in the world to dry beans in-house, fermented beans are dried both in and outdoors on elevated plates to ensure the highest level of hygiene and quality control.
The beans are further “rested” for a minimum of six months to a year to facilitate the fullest flavor-profile development, ensuring unparalleled taste and quality. This unique process of Fermentation - Infusion - Drying - Aging - Roasting - Grinding - Scenting (FIDARGS) was exclusive pioneered by Fu Wan. Subtle flavor nuances may develop within recommended consumption period.
Recognized worldwide for its exceptional effort in creating the “Oriental Cacao”, Fu Wan remains committed to conveying precious cacao experiences to the world.
