Gola Rainforest cacao is produced by the Goleagorbu Cocoa Producers Organisation (GCPO), an umbrella association of 1871 cacao farmers in Sierra Leone who live in the forest edge communities surrounding the Gola Rainforest National Park.

Goleagorbu farmers are trained in agroforestry techniques which promote habitat for birds, butterflies, chimpanzees, and other endangered species by sustainably integrating cocoa trees into the forest edges. GCPO also uses their own regional buying centers for finished cocoa beans to aggregate member-farmers cocoa beans for export.

The cacao used in this bar was ethically sourced from Gola Rainforest in Sierra Leone 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.
