With new packaging and an outstanding recipe, these 100% cocoa discs are better than ever and here for good. Tableya, a traditional Filipino beverage, makes a velvety-smooth hot chocolate, but even more importantly our Tableya has a story: all proceeds directly support our Chocolate University program.
Longtime Askinosie fans will recall that Tableya began as part of our A Product of Change™ initiative where we partnered with PTA’s at local schools in the communities where we source cocoa beans in the Philippines to import Tableya made by them, sell it here domestically, then we returned 100% of the proceeds to them to provide school lunches to the school children, most of whom were malnourished. After 10 years, the three elementary schools are operating the Sustainable Lunch Programs independently as we’d originally planned! And now our Tableya supports a different initiative, our experiential learning program called Chocolate University that educates and empowers local students in Southwest Missouri and students in our cocoa origin communities across the globe.
