Tulemar Resort and Sibu Chocolate Announce Partnership Expansion

(PRWEB) July 18, 2014

Costa Rica’s most recognized producer of artisanal chocolates, Sibu Chocolate, is expanding its product line with three new products, which Tulemar Resort will distribute exclusively in the Manuel Antonio area of Costa Rica’s central pacific region.

Aimed at the culinary market, Sibu’s roasted cacao beans, cacao nibs and sugar-free chocolate powder, packaged as a “drinking chocolate” are to be offered for sale to both the resort’s guests and the local community at large.

“Our Sibu chocolates are really popular with our guests. The bonbons are all-natural with no preservatives, and they work well as a uniquely Costa Rican souvenir,” says Chris Madrigal, one of the resort’s concierges. “The chocolates also serve as a wonderful enhancement for guests celebrating a honeymoon, birthday or anniversary. They just add a special touch to the experience of staying at Tulemar. We’re excited about these additional chocolate products because they expand on that uniqueness, taking it a step further.”

Founded in 2007, Sibu Chocolate has earned a variety of awards for business innovation, creativity and environmental sustainability. The Costa Rican government has even used Sibu bonbons as a welcome gift for foreign dignitaries. All Sibu’s products are Rainforest Alliance Certified, a certification that demonstrates that the company is committed to fair-trade standards relating to the environmental and labor practices.

Whether it’s chocolate bonbons or the roasted cacao beans, Sibu’s products are a good match for the clientele at Tulemar Resort, according to resort spokesperson Dave Houck. He adds, “Everyone likes to indulge themselves on vacation; that’s the whole point, isn’t it? Sibu chocolates and our new line of culinary products are the epitome of indulgence, so this is a truly wonderful partnership for us. Whether enjoyed as an enhancement during their visit or carried home to share as a souvenir, Sibu is a world-class product, as unique and Costa Rican as Tulemar’s bungalows and vacation rental homes.”
