These milk chocolate minis are made from organic cacao from Dominican Republic, Peru and Togo, organic sugar from Paraguay and Costa Rica, and organic vanilla from Madagascar, all grown by small farmer co-ops. When farmers organize into co-ops they gain crucial market access, run their business democratically, and decide together how to invest in their communities. Founded in 2004, our partner ASOCACE was formed to improve the livelihoods of sugar farmers located near the capital city of Asunción in Paraguay. It has grown from the intial 45 members to around 200 today.
