Programme for the development of a native sort of cocoa “Nativo”:
By working with the cooperative Acopagro, situated in the village of Armayari in the Amazon rainforest, we were able to select a cocoa bean of pure origin Trinitario Nativo. This cocoa bean has a distinctly fruity savour, allowing for a high cocoa percentage without adding bitterness. The discovery of this wonderful cocoa is a real adventure.
The supply chain of our cocoa is fully traceable up to our farmers cooperatives Acopagro, Norandino and Oro Verde in Peru, and Conacado in the Dominican Republic. By buying our chocolate, you support the cocoa farmers in getting fair revenues for them to develop local projects:
- Ban child labour and support children schooling
- Reforestation with ecosystem relevant trees
- Promoting women’s emancipation
The cocoa is processed on site:
Our goal is to increase the added value of cocoa in the producing countries, by allowing as many steps of the cocoa transformation (such as roasting and grinding) to be carried out locally in the plantations.
