We at Ambriona understand that each individual has a different body type & therefore have unique dietary requirements to optimize their health needs.

Ambriona was born out of love for chocolates that continues to passionately drive our founding members. A chocolate enthusiast, our founder Shahzad Anklesaria began working towards setting up Ambriona in 2012 while he pursued his Bachelors In Business Administration from the UK.
He thoroughly focused on understanding, researching and learning everything about making and distributing good chocolate. Shahzad discovered that with the rise in international exposure, people across the country have become quality conscious. Moreover, being one of the youngest countries in the world, a majority of our population had already begun making healthier lifestyle choices.
Shahzad witnessed a steeping growth in the demand for dark chocolate, artisanal chocolate, gluten-free and vegan options. By the end of the same year, India was already importing chocolates worth INR 1500 crore annually, in order to cater to the demand of the Indian chocolate market.
Taking inspiration from the Mayan goddess of chocolate: ‘Ixacacao’, Ambriona is an abstract word coined keeping in mind the unique, elegant & feminine attributes representing the goddess of chocolate.
We stand proud by the core philosophy of Ambriona Chocolates that is to embrace all things naturally. Our purpose is to consistently innovate, create indulgent and nutritious products while keeping in mind the varying dietary needs & lifestyle choices of consumers.
At Ambriona, our mission is to change the perception of Made-In-India products by delivering world class chocolates made from the finest cocoa beans
