Exploring and discovering the world of cacaoKANKEL CACAO born with the aim of offering the market top-level gastronomic experiences, based on the trajectory of a figure of recognized prestige (Juan Ángel Rodrigálvarez – National Gastronomy Award).
The Bean-to-bar philosophy is simple: to recover the origins and real flavours of cacao, and to return to those unique processes in which no product is the same as another. From the origin of the cacao bean to grinding, through roasting, peeling … To highlight product proximity, a reflection of the artisan origin of producing chocolate tablets that transports us to these terroirs.
For this purpose, TSMGO participates in the creation of a new brand with an imaginary that permeates and envelops each of its manifestations. The trip becomes the evocative element that connects the consumer with the origin, changing perspectives and allowing us to understand that behind each tablet lies a hidden story.
Kankel becomes an explorer who reveals many details recovered from the world of wine through the incorporation of elements from the trip: the author’s signature, information about the plantation and harvest, vintage and climatology… The history of each variety wrapped in Premium elements which provide a unique, distinguishing identity and make it a delicate experience.
The trip allows us to experience humanity and the change contained in each cacao tablet.
- Create a promising, convincing brand.
- Provide an imaginary linked to the world of cacao, exploration and the discovery of authenticity.
- Project brand personality and who is behind it as the company purpose.
From the name itself we make it clear that it is a project with a great deal of personality, a brand that seeks to: gratify, identify and be didactic with its consumers by contributing more than just a product; a way of understanding the world of cacao and the meaning it has for his promoter, Juan Ángel, or Kankel, as a friend’s daughter calls him.
The claim is a declaration of intent: we broaden your horizons in the world of cacao.
As a brand purpose: We travel the world so you may enjoy all the pleasures the cacao universe has to offer. We establish many parallels with the world of wine: terroir, origin, harvest, variety… Nature, quality… A constant commitment to elaborate the best bean-to-bar possible by way of our Master Chocolatier; an ardent cacao lover who travels the world selecting only the best beans to create the best chocolate bars.
We use elements from travel books with old photographs of the farmers and a hierarchy of highly educational information, highlighting the origin and serving to inspire us in the authenticity of each person we encountered along the way and who is to have a leading role.
