The Cholaca Story
Working together to make life more delicious.
We quickly learned the cacao market largely prioritizes volume over quality, and finding a secure supply of high-quality beans was a barrier. The deeper our team got, the more we uncovered about the lack of sustainability and ethics in the cacao industry. So we took a different path.
Putting care into ethical & regenerative cacao.
What makes Cholaca rise above the rest? We start with our own quality cacao beans that are grown in harmony with their natural ecosystem, and process them to the highest standards in the industry.
We know the finest cacao is achieved only with a commitment to supporting the farmers and land that make great chocolate possible. That’s why our business practices regenerate the soil, the rainforest and the local communities where cacao thrives.

The Future of Chocolate
Sweetening the deal for people & planet.
In order to ensure the future of cacao we need farmers who can earn a living and support their families. We pay our farmers fair wages and provide incentives to not only protect the rainforest but grow it back, offering them stability, security and a greater sense of purpose and responsibility to the land.
