Peru

Sourced from across the globe

The cacao plant originates from the fertile forests surrounding the Amazon River in South America, where it can still be found growing wild today. The small densely branched trees form the understory of the rainforest, thriving in the humid shady environment and nutrient rich soil surrounding the river. Cacao can only grow in a small belt between 20° north and south of the equator, known as the ‘cocoa belt’. It requires a constant climate, with temperatures between 21 and 32 degrees C and at least 10cm of rainfall each month.

Our cacao beans are sourced from plantations across Peru, right in the heart of the native homeland of the cacao plant. The cacao trees are grown organically by cooperatives of local farmers using simple traditional farming methods, and our growers are continually encouraged to develop new methods of growing and harvesting their cacao which minimise damage to the environment.
