The Origin Story of Cacao:
Our cacao farms lie within the archaeological zones of Maya territory, where cacao has been grown, cherished, and celebrated for centuries. By honoring the traditions of the Maya and the deep-rooted history of cacao, we maintain the purity and integrity of our chocolate's richness. From Soil-to-Bar, we ensure that our foods are in harmony with Mother Nature's intentions.
