Single Origin Food Ingredients
SUPPORTING SMALLHOLDER FARMERS
Cacao Juntos is an agtech company developing new categories of natural food products utilizing single origin ingredients harvested from smallholder farmers in Peru. Cacao Juntos is dedicated in bringing together smallholder farmers sharing their harvest for the world to enjoy, and obtaining consistency in their harvest produced. Cacao Juntos produces and exports final product goods made from ingredients cultivated with care from smallholders farmers in Peru.
Cacao Juntos goal is to support smallholder farmers who are eager to develop enduring relationships with someone they can trust and receive new knowledge from. Over the years we took the time to build those relationships especially in isolated areas in Peru. These remote locations often had very limited infrastructure, were overlooked by large cooperatives, or even had cooperatives in financial debt due to poor management thus reducing reinvesting opportunities for its smallholder farmers and ultimately impacting their market access to sell their harvested goods. We found that building relationships in isolated areas with limited infrastructure allowed us to build a strong network and support structure for small holder communities and a bridge of accessibility to higher grade flavor profiles of produce preserved in more favorable climates and rich soil.
We believe that empowered thriving smallholder farmer communities are the essential foundation for sustainable farming.
