From the Chocolate Tree website:
Our mission at Chocolate Tree is to create fine flavour chocolate whilst protecting biodiversity and rewarding farmers with a true premium for their crops of heritage cacao varieties. We purchase cacao from farms in Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and Madagascar. These ultra premium cacaos have been fermented and dried to an exceptional standard by the growers at origin. Only through these careful post harvest processes can the true flavours of our unique chocolate be brought to life.
