The Chocolate of San Isidro

San Isidro. 100 kms. away from Davao City, this municipality in Davao del Norte is known for its vast cacao production area. It boasts of approximately 4,000 hectares of cacao and is known for significantly contributing to the supply of beans for Luzon and the Visayas.

The Chocolate

Chocolate tablet or tablea production is the main source of livelihood in San Isidro for decades now. Chocolate tablets or tablea are processed the way they were handed down for many generations.


The brand is derived from a Visayan dialect which means chocolate drink. These home-style pure dark chocolate tablets are processed from 100% premium cacao beans, roasted to perfection and packed in traditionally crafted banana paper to preserve its freshness. Our tag, DARKER IS BETTER, promotes the use of chocolate at its purest state.
