Tibitó Chocolate is established in 2015 in Bogotá.
Its founder, Gustavo Pradilla worked in the automobile and heavy machinery industry for over three decades. After selling his company in 2015 he decided to convert his longtime passion, chocolate, into a family business.
Already for a long time he had followed the development of the craft chocolate movement, as well as the increasing demand for fine flavor cocoa from neighboring countries. During this time, he realized that Colombian cacao was not given the attention it deserved. This curiosity led Gustavo to embark on a countrywide journey to source Colombia’s finest cocoa beans. As a result, and in order to showcase the high quality and variety of Colombian cacao, Tibitó was born.
Tibitó name for the brand is the name of our family farm near Bogota, a place for family gatherings that brings back many happy memories, a feeling they want to convey through their chocolate.
