Cacao found its way into Philippine shores from Mexico through the Manila-Acapulco Galleon Trade. With lands ideal for cultivation, our country was once the primary producer for the world. From our tsokolate de batirol to the fine bean-to-bar chocolates come a new breed of homegrown brands revitalizing the Philippine cacao industry and empowering more Filipino farmers.
We are kicking off our Cacao & Chocolate GiveShop on World Chocolate Day July 7, 2021. With every purchase, embark on a journey across the Philippines with different cacao origins. This GiveShop will also contribute to community cacao seedling tree-planting for remote island barangays in Olango, Bantayan and Jao Islands.
