Through this partnership, we can guarantee that our cocoa production is non-GMO and has been produced in a socially and environmentally sustainable way. Working with CONACADO allows us to achieve our vision of conserving natural resources and ensuring the economic health of our farming communities through authentic fair trade.
Our cocoa is 100% organic, fermented and dried to ensure better quality.
