Our suppliers source all of the organic cacao beans from agro-forested farms and not from farms that practice mono-cropping. Mono-culture (single crop farming) has a higher incidence of pesticide use even when organically certified.
They do pesticide testing at source and when purchasing beans, they are 100% traceable back to a particular farm or area within a cooperative.
Once the cacao has been processed into nibs, it undergoes a second round of randomized testing for heavy metals & pesticides. Only once these tests are passed does the product ship for distribution.
