Everything we do begins with our passion for giving back to the community, our love of art and our desire to create amazing chocolate. We believe that businesses should give back to the community.
We give back to the community by supporting local charities and a percentage of our profits goes to Burnaby Family Life Institute. We also donate to Whisky Wisemen which fundraise money for various local charities.
We are inspired by our natural surroundings and design visually stunning chocolates that reflect the beautiful patterns and colors found in nature. Located in a culturally diverse region, our chocolates are a mix of classic and contemporary concepts using a wide range of local and international flavors.
Solasta Chocolate is a innovative artisan chocolate company based in Vancouver, Canada. We use high quality ingredients to ensure you get the best tasting confections. For this reason, we advise our customers to enjoy their confections within 3 weeks from purchase.
Sustainability is important to us: we only use cacao produced ethically and sustainably. We try to support local farmers by sourcing our ingredients locally whenever possible.
Why Solasta Chocolate?
Solasta Chocolate means "bright" and "illuminous". Our chocolates are inspired by all elements of West Coast scenery including beautiful colours from breathtaking views of the ocean and mountains, beaches, majestic rain forest and wildlife.
