Master Chocolatier Rasmus Bo Bojesen and Pernille Lüzthøft founded the company in 2010.
Rasmus Bo Bojesen dreamt of creating his own organic chocolate. At that time, he was a trained Chocolatier and had worked professionally with chocolate for many years. However, they struggled to find organic cocoa of sufficiently high quality. The search went on for years.
One night, while attending a dinner party, a Danish producer of organic cereals informed Rasmus Bo Bojesen about wild cocoa trees growing in the Beni-province of Bolivia. By chance, the Danish Foreign Ministry hosted a conference in Bolivia and Bojesen received an invitation to attend.
Since the middle of 2020, Rasmus Bo Bojesen has investigated the opportunities for collecting wild cocoa beans from the Columbian Rainforest regions as well. We expect the search to add new flavoured, exquisite tastes to the Oialla brand.
