Cocoa beans

Sourcing more than 1M tonnes of cocoa beans annually from every major cocoa growing region across the globe, we are leaders when it comes not only to quantity but also quality.  From Ecuador to Cote d'Ivoire to Papua New Guinea, we offer superior cocoa beans at scale, ranging from high quality West African bulk shipments to small lot, fine flavor cocoa beans. 

Specialty Cacao beans 

We are passionate about cacao. Where it's grown, how it’s grown and who's growing it. We invest in building partnerships with farmers in both established and undiscovered terroirs of the cocoa belt, the narrow zone that lies between 20°N and 20°S of the Equator. These degrees of latitude, where we source uniquely flavored cacao, are also the inspiration for our name.

 

Using cutting edge technology we are able to provide total transparency of supply chain ensuring we can create mutual benefit for growers and customers alike. The dedication and expertize of our local teams enables us to bring the most interesting and flavorful cacao stories to life.

Our progress towards tackling deforestation in cocoa

Forests are vital to sustainable cocoa production. Not only do they help to improve biodiversity and mitigate against climate change, they also help to improve cocoa yields and raise farmer incomes.
