{ the origin }

Produits Des Iles SA (PISA) is a centralized fementary + exporter, working with 1104 registered farmers, 492 of which are female, providing an average annual revenue of $117 USD per farmer for wet cacao.

PISA launched their centralized processing facility in 2012 – a revolutionary change in Haiti’s cacao production system, which was not focused on quality but rather a bulk unfermented commodity. Now, PISA is providing smallholder farmers access to the specialty cacao market by purchasing wet cacao, centrally fermenting it, and selling it at a higher price for its higher quality.

{ sourcing report }

The cacao used in this bar was ethically sourced from PISA, Haiti via Uncommon Cacao. We pay the farmers above fairtrade prices in an effort to adequately compensate farmers’ labour, support local infrastructure, and encourage sustainable growth.
