**NEW SOURCING & LARGER SIZE** We are super stoked to offer you our newly sourced raw, organic & Rainforest certified Ecuadorian Cacao Beans! Our raw cacao beans are the highly prized fine-flavour Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional criollo variety, are always fermented, non-hybrid & non-GMO. Our previous beans were offered in a 10 lb unit, however our new beans come to you in 5kg (11lb) units for the same price- SCORE!
Our Ecuadorian partner harvests fully mature ripened pods from trees grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil. They work directly with farmers (aka direct trade) and developed and implemented the Native Cacao Farming Initiative, which is an ongoing free education and training program for the cacao harvesters and processors. It is important to us that the Ecuadorians responsible for creating this amazing food are well taken care of, and it is also our goal to source clean, pure, nutritious cacao of the highest quality possible. We lab test each lot of raw materials to ensure the high standards our customers have come to expect are met or exceeded.
Food safety is of primary importance and we are happy to share with you that our Ecuadorian partner holds the following certifications; Organic, UTZ, Rainforest Alliance, Kosher, Halal, Non-GMO, FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certified, ISO 9001:2015, GMP, BRC Certified. Further steps have been taken to ensure the cacao is non-irradiated and common allergen-free.
