Our Excellence cocoa is processed in our own 66 fermentation centers of which there are 8 established in Côte d’Ivoire. In each of the other origins there are fermentation centres as well; São Tomé and Principe, Ecuador, Peru and the Dominican Republic.
Farmers bring their fresh beans directly to the center.

Food quality, our priority
As part of the Transparence Cacao program, from 4 out of our 5 cocoa origin countries, we source only organic cocoa. These origins are Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Peru and São Tomé and Principe.
