Where we are

Farmers trained


We work in partnerships

We connect farmers directly with markets to leave a long lasting impact, beyond the life of a given project. We partner with companies that not only wish to invest in improving cacao quality and yields, but also in the systems that make those improvements possible for the future, such as higher prices, good genetic material for planting, and more direct, feasible and profitable supply chains for smallholder farmers.

Our partnerships

Through our partnership with Agrotec Corp, we provide technical assistance on agricultural best practices to cacao-growing families in the provinces of Jaén, support local organizations by training community promoters in leadership with an entrepreneurial approach, and facilitate access to financing through a microleasing model.

The Peruvian Association of Cacao Farmers (APPCACAO) is an organization that promotes the production, productivity and consumption of Peruvian cacao and its derivatives nationally and internationally. Through this partnership, we provide farmers with technical assistance, better genetic material for planting, and access to financing besides strengthening the commercial ties between sellers and buyers.
