We invested in a cacao farm in Ecuador
We have invested in a cacao farm in the Guayaquil Region of Ecuador where several hundreds of acres have been dedicated to our own cacao beans. This location in South America offers the ideal conditions for growing cacao trees. The combination of the favourable climate, the perfect soil and the expertise of our local farmers guarantees the superior quality of our chocolate.
The cacao farmers are true masters of the fermentation process, which releases the characteristic aromas of the cacao beans to perfection so that we can enjoy chocolate with a unique, distinctive and rich flavour.
We believe in the importance of the origins of our cacao beans and in purchasing them directly because it gives us the opportunity to work closely with the cacao farmers. They hand down their expertise from generation to generation thus maintaining the traditions of good cacao farming. For our part, we ensure a sustainable relationship with safe and healthy working conditions, higher average wages and the exclusion of any form of child labour.
