For the love of chocolate!

We exist to provide excellent quality artisanal chocolate to all chocolate lovers across the globe.

A little about us.

In 2020 the illustrious nomad Marlin was living & working in the Maldives. The world then came to a grinding halt & he was stranded in Thailand. Stuck in a foreign country with no income & very few options to move, he decided to start making chocolate slabs in order to survive.

Food has long been a passion of his and off course, chocolate being one of his favourites. It was a gift when arriving in Thailand, he was stranded near a cacao plantation.
After producing chocolate slabs for the locals, he began selling them in the local markets. He decided to continue following his passion on his return to South Africa later that year.

Today, Mayan Chocolate Company is an artisanal chocolate company located in George in the Garden Route. Hand crafted bonbons are our signature product, tailor made to your requirements. We produce in small batches by hand which takes 2-3 days. The process requires patience as every step has a crucial effect on the end product.
We make our own chocolate “bean to bonbon”
