DARK DELICACIES OF PERU AND ECUADOR

Our rich and fruity cacao hails from two distinct terroirs; the Manabí region of the Ecuadorian coast and the San Martín region of the Peruvian Amazon. Both are known for cacao with the best aromas and highest quality. 

In Peru, this quality can be attributed to the lush forest canopies shading the cacao trees, provided for by native trees planted in partnership with Alter Eco and ACOPAGRO.

 
INSETTING: PLANTING TREES WITHIN OUR OWN SUPPLY CHAIN

2,260

tons of CO2 generated in 2017

6,780

trees protected in 2017

27,697

trees planted since 2008

Every year, to offset our carbon emissions, we work with PUR Projet and our cacao producing partners at ACOPAGRO to reforest the San Martín region of Peru. This area suffered severe deforestation in the 1980s as it became a red zone for coca production. Alter Eco farmers, now cultivating high-quality cacao, strategically plant native and high-value trees within their cacao fields, to naturally sequester carbon and maintain the rainy microclimate so necessary for successful cacao cultivation.
