“Around 99.99% of world cacao tree production is growing on plantations. The rest, 0.01% of world production features very rare wild-grown cacao.

Biosphere – Fine Honduran Cacao comes from Wampusirpi, location immediately adjacent to Río Plátano Biosphere Reserve in Honduras which has been a World Heritage site and biosphere reserve since 1982. In 2011, UNESCO placed the reserve on the List of World Heritage. This premium couverture chocolate has exceptional quality and single origin.

It was important not to follow Aztec or Mayan motifs, which are very common on many chocolate labels from this region. Exceptional quality product needed exceptional design. The aim was to illustrate the atmosphere of the jungle where the cacao grows. Therefore the label for 80% dark chocolate was illustrated as rainforest at night. Tempered chocolate drops are packed in 5kg bags and are sold only to trade.”

Designed by Michal Slovák | Country: Slovakia

“Since 2012 LYRA has stood for the highest quality handmade chocolate made in Slovakia. Lyra chocolate made of the finest cocoa beans, criollo and trinitario, grown on the plantations in the Middle and South America, was granted an international award Great Taste 2014.

This year they decided to place a new line of their own recipe premium products on the market. The aim was to create new packages for the premium products. Simple, playful and extraordinary just like the products themselves and this way distinguishable from the other chocolate. As a result, there are two new coated products LYRA BEAN-TO-BAR chocolate – 78% DARK BIO and 46% MILK BIO.

The bars feature a small, centered graphic of a cocoa pod, indicative of the pure ingredients used to create it and golden stamping in the middle to distinguish. The new design goes hand in hand with the essence, the taste itself. As the Lyra chocolate flavors are well tuned so do the design of new packages.”

Tatratea

Tatratea

Tatratea

Designed by Pergamen | Country: Slovakia

“In 2009 Karloff, a premium Slovak producer and distributor of spirits and wines decided to change the design of a popular Tatratea. Design studio Pergamen created a new bottle, symbol and design for this strong Slovak spirit. Inspiration for the shape of the bottle was a therm flask used in Tatra Mountains resorts. Easily identified silhouette with no bottle neck is accompanied by a symbol “T” that is inspired by traditional wood-carving and jewel-making. The initial contains solar symbols for the circle of life, symbols of love, happiness, fertility etc. Simple (but distinct) colour scale helps to identify particular kinds of Tatratea according to the volume of alcohol. A limet-green glass of Tatratea 32 underlines its citrus flavour. A gentle peach tint of Tatratea 42 respects the presence of a white tea. The legendary 52 with extracts of black tea occupies the black bottle. Forest fruits in Tatratea 62 are softened by a glass with forest fruits colour. The strongest Tatratea 72 has a titan metallic look. The aim of re-design of Tatratea was to accent the brand essence: “Strong original from the heart of Tatra Mountains”.
