For República del Cacao the commitment to the protection of fine cacao and farmer allies goes beyond buying at fair prices but extends to technical support and the development of responsible farming practices, promoting the protection of native varieties of fine cacao. The company has accomplished the highest standards of social and environmental development, transparency and corporate responsibility, while searching to balance purpose and profit, receiving the B Corp certification, as a recognition of the efforts to develop an inclusive, equitable, and sustainable economic model for all.
