  • Farmers in the picture - Ivory Coast

From farmers, buying clercks, roasters to bakers, pastry chefs, chocolatiers and everyone in between: we are a proud collective! And we are all united by or passion for chocolate - yet, let's focus on the start of the story. Allow us to introduce you to our farmers. Great chocolate can only start with their passion, dedication and motivation to grow us the best grades of cocoa beans.

IVORY COAST

Our craftsmanship includes everyone in the process who contributes to the quality and taste of our chocolate: and it starts with the farmers who grow high quality cocoa beans. In Ivory Coast, we partner with 69 cocoa cooperatives from who we directly source. Together they represent about 50.000 dedicated cocoa farmers.

As a tribute to their work, we will regularly highlight the faces and voices of farmers from different cooperatives in Ivory Coast.
