Sustainability map: discovering the origins behind sustainable ingredients
Promising growth in Ecuador cocoa farming
Best known in the world of cocoa as an origin with fine flavor designated cocoa production, specifically for Arriba cocoa with its distinctly floral notes, Ecuador is also an area rich in knowledge of sustainability in agricultural production.
Building upon the sustainable practices used by Ecuadorian coffee farmers, integrating new growing techniques for cocoa, and also incorporating cocoa varieties resistant to disease, the potential for productivity in Ecuador far surpasses that of most cocoa growing origins today. This outlook has Ecuador primed to be among the most resource efficient cocoa producing origins.
