In between a trading company and consultancy agency.
We are a special cacao agency: in between a trading and consultancy company. But always on cacao and with a focus to create impact. We build direct, transparent cacao supply chains. Our aim is to help farmers of good cacao moving forward by offering our marketing, sales and logistics services. We bring their beans on the market, and our wish is that after 2 years they take over themselves. Because of our network and our location at the heart of cacao - Amsterdam - we easily connect supply and demand.
This is how we divide our work:
30% sourcing & selling cacao beans, powder, liquor and butter > read more here
30% logistics & distribution from origin to the Port of Amsterdam or directly to the client > read more here
40% consultancy & trainings to NGO's, private companies and cooperatives > read more here
