About Us


 

We make our chocolate from scratch, cacao bean-to-chocolate bar, on the Sunshine Coast, QLD.

A conscious, purposeful company, driven by our passion and enjoyment in what we do and our contribution to something we find meaningful. 

Pure Mill Chocolate was founded by environmental scientist, nutritionist and surfer Millie Louise, who, in 2013, discovered and became captivated by cacao and chocolate making while working on a climate change research project in Ecuador.

Based on the seaside of the Sunshine Coast, just north of Brisbane, Australia, we make premium chocolate with the world’s finest cacao, from bean to bar. 

 

WHAT WE ARE ABOUT.

Organic Agriculture.

It’s important that our chocolates are produced without harming our planet and with sustainably in mind, Because we love our environment. We pay premium prices for high-quality, organically grown ingredients, voting for organic agriculture with our dollars. 

Unique Crafting Methods.

Craft chocolate is good quality chocolate made from scratch. We complete our chocolate making process with our own individual and unique methods. This includes keeping our processing minimal, developing precise temperatures and timings to extract and enhance our personal flavour.

The Origin.

Today, you can find cacao trees across the world, but we fell in love with the culture, the people and the high quality organic beans from the beautiful island of Makira, in the Solomon Islands. 

Chocolate for health and as Medicine. 

Historically, chocolate has been used to treat a wide variety of problems. Curanderos (traditional healers) give chocolate drinks to cure bronchitis, sore throats, anaemia, gastrointestinal illnesses and even overworked brains. Chocolate is very high in health-giving antioxidants, lowering blood pressure and preventing heart disease.

In Panama, Kuna Indians drink five or more cups of chocolate each day to prevent incidence of heart disease and cancer. 

Chocolate releases endorphins which boost your mood, enhances cognitive function and even strengthens your teeth. Industrial chocolate manufacturers use low-quality beans and add tons of sugar, turning this functional, health-boosting food into junk food. We take pride in making a pure form of chocolate, which is naturally organic, vegan, paleo, low GI, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and refined sugar-free.

We hope you enjoy our chocolates as much as we enjoy making them.
