“Jean Duya is the guest of honour at Qantu.
Here is our version of the historic Gianduja, this Italian heritage to the chocolate world!
First the hazelnuts, they are from Piedmont in Italy as tradition dictates. Yes! Those with a caramel heart! Then our milk chocolate adds a burst of light and softness to this creation.
The result, a velvety aromatic Gianduja, a journey straight to northern Italy!”
Raised in Peru, Elfi Maldonado was travelling in her native land when she met Maxime Simard, who was to become her life partner. As their love for one another blossomed, a joint venture simultaneously came to fruition. In 2017 they cofounded Qantu, a bean-to-bar project with a meaningful connection to Peru’s distinct heirloom cacao.
The first three Qantu bars were awarded with two gold medals and one silver medal at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in London in June 2017.
But why the name Qantu? It's the name of the national flower of Peru and Bolivia, a flower which is native to the Peruvian Andes. The word Qantu comes from the native Quechua language and is pronounced 'Kantu'.
