Cacao Farming

Cocoa farming starts from the growth of Cacao fruits on trees that are between the age of 5 to 40 years to a harvest that is conducted only twice a year. Our process ensures sustainable cacao farming that respects the environment at all times.

Once the harvest arrives at our cocoa processing factory in Louviers a regoures quality check is conducted to select impeccable quality beans.
