Fun Facts :
"Unlike other Spanish colonies in South America, where gold and silver were abundant, Ecuador was exploited for its cocoa."
With more than 160 Awards won Internationally and even awarded as the World Best Chocolate for 5 consecutive years, this must have made us question :
Why is Pacari so special?
Here are some of the reasons that make Pacari Chocolate unique:
Pacari works on a small batches using carefully selected ingredients to highlight the exceptional flavour profile of the cacao bean.
We use only Arriba Nacional cacao, the plants native to Ecuador that yield a bean classified as “fino de aroma.” This cacao is known for its rich, full taste and complex fruity and floral notes.
2. USDA Certified Organic & Demeter Certified Biodynamic
Pacari is the only chocolate company that has the Demeter Biodynamic Certification seal, which certifies that all Pacari Chocolate Bars are Free of Chemicals, Pesticides and Fertilizers. We are also certified Organic.
3. Direct Trade with Farmers
We work directly with small scale farmers, not middle men, to ensure that they are fairly compensated for their products.
At Pacari we pride ourselves on paying the highest price to cocoa producers, supporting the conservation of diverse cropping ecosystems and maintaining a good relationship with farmers' communities.
We are located within a few hour´s drive from most of our producers, and we work closely with them to help improve their organic agriculture processes and bean quality.
Thanks to the care we put in each part of the production process of our bars, we maintain the natural characteristics of each of our ingredients.
This is how we integrate with cocoa, a variety of Andean fruits and ingredients known for their amazing nutritional, energizing and refreshing properties. These ingredients are grown organically and biodynamically, which helps preserve the qualities of these foods to maintain their high nutrient content and low calorie content.
These traits make Pacari products can be classified as Superfoods: foods of 100% natural origin with a high percentage of nutritious and healthy elements.
