We’re back again with Armando Choco of Living Wise Organics! Today, Armando talks about his new partnership with the Toledo Cacao Growers Association in Belize. The Toledo Cacao Growers Association is comprised of 150 subsistence cacao growers. These growers are highly specialized in their craft and can maintain upward of 1-2 acres of cacao pods.
At harvest, the 150 cacao growers will then collaboratively distribute their beans together which are sold locally and internationally. We were so excited to bring this Belize cacao into our chocolates as they add a more complex yet, perfectly subtle nuance when blended with our Ecuadorian cacao.
They harmoniously work together to create a unique experience that showcases the truly artful mastery of cacao cultivation that Armando and Living Wise Organics have nurtured in Belize.
