Our model
designed to ensure quality and enduring social  impact
  1. Transfer technical knowledge
    Farmer field schools have been designed to 1) enhance farmers´ technical capabilities, 2) implement best agriculture practices in each sourcing farm and 3) foster trust and associative work among the communities we target.
  2. Facilitating farmers access to financing
    Lack of access to financing tools have hampered farmers´ investment in their crops. We actively work with financing partners to facilitate the flow of the capital required to get the farmers´ crops to their full potential.
  3. Centralized post-harvest processing
    We buy wet cacao from multiple farms, and conduct the fermentation and drying process under standardized protocols and optimal infrastructure conditions. This way we aim to secure consistent volumes and quality in our product offer.
  4. Commercialization in high value export markets
    We build lasting commercial partnerships with the finest chocolate producers worldwide. These relationships pillars are trust, transparency, and differentiated product quality, and are the means to bring the market closer to the cacao growing community.
