Short description

Chocolate. It is enough to hear the word to make everybody, young and old, happy. It has been cultivated in Guatemala for thousands of years. The Mayan populations discovered it and used beans and cocoa butter for food. This fruit was so important that it was used as currency among Mayan indigenous peoples. Still nowadays it is an excellent source of income for peasant families.

Am I already your favorite tree?

Where will it be planted?

We plant cocoa trees in Guatemala, in the Petén region. Local farming communities cultivate cocoa trees in land at risk of desertification. Setting up agroforestry planting projects ‒ and not monocultures ‒ the progressive regeneration of soil is ensured together with animal and plant biodiversity.
A stable ecosystem where the cocoa plant can grow protected by the shade of tall trees.
