La Colonia, Nicaragua


In Partnership with Enliven Cacao, we are investing in a cacao program that is making tangible community impact. When we first purchased cacao from this rural cooperative, the community was able to wire local electricity for the first time.

Today the community has used the profits from cocoa sales to open their first Internet Cafe, bridging the gap from farmer to chocolate maker internationally.

PISA, Haiti


PISA launched their centralized processing facility in 2014, which was a revolutionary change for the way the cacao industry worked in Haiti, offering the first high quality Haitian cacao to the US market. Through private sector innovation, PISA partnered with farmers to give them what they really needed: pricing transparency, a consistent market, and an elimination of risk. Today, PISA still provides smallholder farmers access to the specialty cacao market by purchasing wet cacao, centrally fermenting it, and selling it at a higher price for its higher quality.

Tumaco, Colombia


On the southern pacific coast of Colombia, Tumaco is a region that has been hard hit by historic political conflict and plagued by narco trafficking. Since Cacao de Colombia first explored the region back in 2011, they have made it possible for farmers today to earn 70% more income from cacao than they did when selling dried beans to the commodity market supply chain, and have a true sustainable alternative to coca production or involvement in the narco groups.
