Almost all cocoa grown in Madgascar come from within an area with a 50-kilometre radios radius within the Sambirano region and , along the Sambirano riverbed where the annual floods enrich the nutrients of the soil. Unlike some many other cocoa producing nations, Madagascan cocoa yields crop all year round.
Two former Peace Corps workers, Tim McCollum and Brett Beach, co-founded Madécasse in 2008 while working in Madagascar with an aim to benefit a local farming industry through a cooperative of 45 farmers.
Their chocolate was originally made and packed on location packaged by the [[Chocolaterie Robert]] in [[Antananarivo]] and is now (since 2009) produced by [[Cinagra]], Madagascar Madagascars second chocolate maker, also located in Antananarivo.
In 2011, Madécasse was awarded one of ''[|50 Most Innovative Companies]'' by [|Fast Company] - a media company which features unique business formulas and the individuals behind them in their printed and online publications.
