Our work with Fiji’s Cacao Farmers
Fijiana Cacao’s dedication to manufacturing 100% Fijian made chocolate starts with the grassroots farmers who grow the beans for our chocolate. From the start, we took it upon ourselves to help educate local farmers about the best practices for producing quality cacao beans. This included the creation of a post harvest fermentation toolkit for use by farmers, which helps them produce higher quality beans and fetch premium prices for their cacao. In addition, our dedicated farm manager conducts regular site visits and provides hands on help to farmers. These efforts are helping improve the livelihoods of rural farming communities while also growing Fiji’s cacao industry.
