Cacao Origin

Located in Bundibugyo, Western Uganda, Semuliki Forest cacao is grown by 1,002 organic smallholder farmers in the region, 52% of whom are women.

Latitude Trade Co. (LTC), the company that prepares and exports this cacao, has organised 10 rural collection points for farmers to access, where they sell fresh cacao weekly into the network and receive cash at the point of sale.

LTC's centralised fermentation facility and warehouse is located in the town of Kasese, north of Lake George. The site is designed to take advantage of all possible available sunshine while limiting runoff from heavy rainfall.

Fermentation boxes have a 500kg capacity and total duration of fermentation varies from 5.5 - 6.5 days.

Beans are sun-dried on portable raised racks for 6 - 7 days and blended to create consistent lots before export.
