Revitalizing the Asian cacao industry
Cacao production in Asia has been falling over the past 20 years, because hardworking farmers just aren’t paid enough to grow cacao.
Benns Ethioca works directly with farmers, cutting out the middleman, so our farmers earn up to 3x market rate. With this business model, multi-generational Asian cacao farms are thriving, expanding, and investing in better methods of production— adding sustainable practices to a proud tradition of cacao cultivation.
Our transparent and mutually supportive partnerships mean a finer quality of life for cacao farmers, a reinvigorated Asian cacao industry, and tastier artisan chocolate for all of us.
