Certifications: Gluten-Free, Certified Organic by MOFGA, Vegan
Some contend that Belize is the "Cradle of Chocolate". There is ample anthropological evidence that the Mayan civilization consumed drinking chocolate over 2600 years ago. Today's Brazilian beans are groen by over 350 certified organic smallholder cacao farming families in the Toledo district, most of them indigenous Q'eqchi' and Mopan Maya. These growers are supported by Maya Mountain Cacao, a direct trade source founded in 2010, which operates a 24-hectare demonstration farm for research and training in best practices for increasing cacao yield and quality.
