At Montecristi Chocolate, we care about the quality of cacao beans we source and about the livelihoods of the farmers who cultivate the plantations. For us, it is crucial that every link of the chain – beginning with the seeding and ending with our organic chocolate couverture – is traceable.
We buy directly from small farm cooperatives who command fair prices and improve their livelihoods as a result.
We pay higher than market prices for each quintal of organic Arriba cacao that we use to produce our organic chocolate couverture from. If it is good for our people, it’s good for us.
