“Our workers are paid daily minimums and full time workers all minimums amd benefits. We offer monthly workshops, and meetings for the farmers and they need to attend 9 per year.”

 

This ancestral cacao is the product of ´´Tuqtuquilal´´, a regenerative center that uses reforestation to empower cacao. The collective is focusing on the exchange of information to develop sustainable living solutions for the benefit of the local Q’eqchi community and visitors alike. The center is a start-up “not for profit” that grows cacao, without the use of agrochemicals.

This cacao is grown in the mountain region of Alta Verapaz, close to the famous waterfalls of Semuc Champey, and at the mouth of the Lanquin River.
