Esmeraldas ECUADOR 40% Milk Chocolate

Costa Esmeraldas is a family-owned, single estate farm that is operated entirely by the Salazar family. Located in the Esmeraldas province of Ecuador, a region not traditionally known for fine flavor cacao, the farm has reclaimed land once occupied by cattle pastures. The Salazars have decades of expertise in mineral exploration, environmental remediation, and also operate Fundación Salazar, an independent non-profit that operates with the mission to create lasting benefits from communities nearby resource extraction operations.

Traceable and responsible ingredients

We believe that establishing a sustainable and traceable supply chain should be a baseline standard for any business, but especially when working in an industry that is still wrought with human rights abuses and corruption.
