While the majority of cacao tree producers are increasing the production of flavorless high-yielding chocolate for mass produced chocolate bars (containing high levels of sugar and added artificial flavors), HCP is striving to preserve the rich biodiversity of cacao trees in Ecuador. These Heirloom trees make balanced, unique, fine flavor chocolate possible for future generations to experience.
