Ecuador

ChocoSol sources cacao from Kallari, a co-operative organisation made of and made for small-scale cacao Amazonian producers in Ecuador. The organisation spans 144 communities and over 2,800 families in the Tena, Archidona, Arosemena, Tola, and Napo provinces.

Kallari is dedicated to being 100% Kichwa owned and operated, preserving local and endemic cacao varieties, and the unique terroir of the regions. The production is selected from the best chakras (garden lots) in the area, and the organisation works with its members to ensureย that the cocoa has been grown organically.
