Ao Cacao was created by Thomas Netana Wright - Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Whātua, Te Whakatōhea & Te Ao Pakehā - Jewish & English. An elite level trained pastry chef and chocolatier / chocolate maker. Inspired by his whakapapa / family heritage, Thomas combines his illustrious heritage of both sides to create an expression of what conscious ethical chocolate is.

Thomas is the last direct descendant of the Wright's Dairy in Chelsea in London established in 1796, a famous dairy business for over 200 years. The dairy was sold before Thomas was born however, his history inspires and drives Thomas every day to create a craft to be proud of for generations to come. Thomas believes in people first. Ao Cacao's approach is simple: Respect the history of cacao, Respect the People, Be Transparent and Be a good ancestor.

In 2021, Ao Cacao was born out of Thomas's long-held vision to revolutionise the chocolate industry. As a Māori-owned and indigenous enterprise, Thomas is committed to bringing equity and equality to the cacao and chocolate sectors. "We collaborate closely with Pacific cacao farmers and indigenous producers, ensuring that our creations are not just luxurious but also a testament to indigenous excellence".
