The Pacari Story


Pacari Chocolate is a family business created in 2002 by Santiago Peralta and Carla Barbotó with the aim of changing the history of chocolate in Ecuador. What started as a family business would soon become a business that revolutionized the industry, not only in the country but throughout the Latin American region.

Pacari means "nature" in Quechua, name chosen to evoke everything that represents his chocolate: the best products of the earth, 100% natural. This firm thus guarantees the health of the land and of those who consume its products, since they are free of soy, dairy, gluten, chemical and transgenic.

The model that Carla and Santiago use has as one of its fundamental principles to put the producer first. The quality of Pacari reflects the work together with each person involved in constant innovation, social responsibility, sustainability and direct trade with small-scale farmers.
