It is Cocoa Asante’s goal to own our entire chocolate production process.
Although 100% of our cocoa is sustainable and originates from Ghana, due to the way cocoa is regulated, we are unable to access cocoa in bulk directly from family-owned farms. We must either buy it unprocessed from the government or processed from European chocolate companies.
It is our long-term goal to change this. We would like to raise enough capital to build a cocoa factory in Ghana. This will allow us to cut out unnecessary middlemen and will allow more of the profits to be returned to the farmers, as it should be. That way our chocolate is not only sustainable for the environment but also for the communities which work so diligently to produce the truffles we enjoy.
