WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
We only plant selected and proven vegetative genetic material
We maintain a rigorous traceability of each one of our trees and their production
We guarantee that all the cacao we export comes from a single plantation, thus assuring a homogeneous taste and quality of the cocoa beans and puree
During the post- harvest process, a per hour control is carried out, therefore our customers can be informed of all the steps and time of each prepared batch for sale
Since we are suppling the food industry, is our philosophy to offer a very neat cocoa bean that does not touch the ground in any stage of the production process and not contaminated with external materials, therefore is ready to use.
