Bejofo Estate is an organic cacao orchard that makes up one part of the 2000-hectare Akesson Estate in northwest Madagascar’s Sambirano valley. Akesson’s Estate is divided into four smaller estates: Madirofolo, Menavava, Bejofo, and Ambolikapik. It is managed by Bertil Akesson, who has specialized in growing fine cocoa, pepper, and other spices for many years. Bejofo Estate produces 300 tons of cacao a year. Bertil also sells chocolate made out of his own cacao under the “Akesson’s Organic” brand, which is sold throughout the world.

The cacao used in this bar was ethically sourced from Bejofo Estate on the island of Madagascar via Meridian Cacao. We pay the farmers above fairtrade prices in an effort to adequately compensate farmers’ labour, support local infrastructure, and encourage sustainable growth.
