When Cacao Blessings was created we knew it was possible to improve the quality of the artisanal production of pure and unrefined cacao from Bocas del Toro, as well as we wanted to mature the idea of teaching how to consume this marvelous food and rescue valuable traditions of its authentic consumption.
After a while, we realized we also wanted to produce nutritious single-origin chocolates, from scratch, together with these women so they could also benefit from this new career opportunity.
We do not seek our business to fit into current models and certifications. In the field, we focus on working closely with female cacao farmers who follow practices and quality standards we suggest for the sustainable growth of their farms and preservation of their legacies.
We always purchase their crops at prices that are above what the market actually pays, valuing them for their arduous work and protecting them from market fluctuations.
We continue to work on improving the positioning of Cacao and Chocolate from Bocas del Toro! Consider our social enterprise as a work in progress.
