We all know chocolate is made from the seeds of the cacaofruit (or better known as beans), but many aren’t aware that the cacaofruit is actually a fruit, just like an apple or an orange. Previously, 70% of the cacaofruit was thrown away because only the seeds were used to craft our beloved chocolate.
Now not only its seeds but also the peel and the fresh and juicy pulp are used to create delicious and upcycled ingredients. Cabosse Naturals has developed a unique, scalable supply chain to offer consumers, chefs, and artisans around the world a range of nutritious, 100% pure cacaofruit ingredients!
Knowing that preventing food waste is the single greatest solution to prevent global warming, upcycling the cacaofruit is the perfect way to give consumers the opportunity to enjoy a new taste while minimizing their impact on the environment.
By using the full cacaofruit, not only food waste is prevented: the cacaofruit farmers receive more income. This additional income helps to improve the lives of the 450+ families we currently work with. Altogether, that’s more than 1600 people that we are reaching and positively impacting. A great reward and recognition for all their efforts to cultivate beautiful and healthy cacaofruits.
