Our luxury chocolate for our chocolate bars comes from Colombia.
We buy from a team who have sustainability as top of their agenda along with trading fairly. They support cocoa farmers with a training school (they also encourage cocaine farmers to move into cocoa), have schools for the children, offer medical support and more. In all their work sustainability is high on the agenda. (They have a trial sustainability plantation near Panama).
Amelia has travelled extensively in Colombia to meet some of the the farmers on their plantations, stayed at the training school, trial plantations and visited some of the schools for their children.
The 70% Dark cocoa beans are all from the same co-operative of growers in the north-western Arauca region, while the beans in the 41% Milk and 35% White come from all over the country. Critically it’s all taken from bean to the ‘couverture’ stage in Colombia using 100% local ingredients.
