Otto Organic White Chocolate 
Posted: 29 August 2015    6.0 
Otto Organic White Chocolate from Italy As far as the chocolate goes, Otto's Organic White Chocolate is decent, above average. It's unlikely at this point you'll be able to find these chocolates anyway.  Otto lets you know on their web site where to find them, and all the regions are Italian. I could not find head nor tails of them on any non-Italian web site.    
Avg price/gram: USD 0.025   Cocoa %: 30  Size: 100g   
       


Otto Organic White Chocolate is the second bar my wife and I secured as we were exiting a delicious restaurant/gourmet shop/beer store called the Beer Oasis after feasting on their superb €11 buffet.  It contained everything we were looking for.   Organic, Fairtrade, and it was white chocolate, my wife's favorite type.       

Otto is another one of those smaller chocolate companies that has got its heart in the right place.  They're based in Genoa, in northwestern Italy, and source their cacao from Peru, from an operation called Acopagro, a cooperative of Peruvian farmers. The beans are processed into chocolate by Icam, an Italian chocolate company around since 1946.  Otto, therefore, appears to be a virtual chocolate company.  They come up with the packaging, source the inputs, provide the recipes, but have another company do the actual manufacturing.  Not a bad position to be in nowadays.  Gypsy brewers have done wonderfully using this scenario of low overheads.            

As far as the chocolate goes, Otto's Organic White Chocolate is decent, above average.  It's smooth, but noticeably so, and the flavor won't burst out and cry, "Remember me above all other white chocolates."      

It's unlikely at this point you'll be able to find these chocolates anyway.  Otto lets you know on their web site where to find them, and all the regions are Italian.  I could not find head nor tails of them on any non-Italian web site.  Like any chocolate maker today, they must have visions of international expansion.  Fairtrade organic white chocolate doesn't sound as sexy on the resume anymore.  You've got to bring more to the table.
