In Peru we work in partnership with BOS+, this organization owns a co-management of the Yanesha community reserve, with cocoa production in the buffer zone.
Our mission is to regenerate the Earth, by planting trees on and around the cocoa plantations. Planting trees is good for the climate, as well as countless social and economic benefits.
Since January 2020 we started with donating 2,5 % of our revenue from Chocolates from Heaven to our partner for planting trees. With this money Bos + wants to achieve a win-win between forest conservation, that is tackling the biodiversity and climate crisis, and at the same time improve the quality of life of the local population, through forest protection and a higher income through cocoa production.
All the cocoa we use comes from the Acopagro corporation is organic and Fairtrade certified. Acopagro counts 2000 members: small-scale producers of cocoa and sugar cane, having 5 hectares of land each, with an average of 2,2 ha of cocoa fields.
