Trace cacao butter more than barely

The main ingredient of white chocolate is cacao butter. But while a growing count of chocolate companies show a degree of concern about the origin of the cocoa solids they buy, most ignore the question of cacao butter, because it moves through a different supply chain. Since Original Beans’ regenerative business aims to close all loops, plus our hometown Amsterdam is the center of cacao butter manufacturing in the world, we are on  the butter traceability case.

After reconnaissance trips to Yuna region and collaborating with cacao butter processors in Amsterdam, our current organic cacao butter is traceable, but not fully to our satisfaction. As always full of beans we are working on an industry upgrade in this respect. Stay tuned!

Know your bean: Yuna Trinitario

Trinitario (‘native to Trinidad’) is part of the diverse mix of cacaos on Hispaniola. In fact, Trinidad itself is home to a diverse mix of cacaos some of which were introduced as early as the 16th century by the Spanish. Because of their natural remoteness, islands always harbour their own special bio, and thus cacao diversity.

One bar : One tree @Yuna

Over the last 10 years, the farmer-owned cooperative Conacado has directly supported their member farmers by

  • improving both quality and yields
  • building schools, community centres, and a library
  • Improving access to health care and clean drinking water

To maintain our own traceability and control for the One bar : One tree programme, we direct it in this case to Virunga region, in Eastern Congo.

Want to follow the impact of this project? One bar : One tree : Go see!
