Kallari Chocolate Day Tour

Highlights

  • Learn how cacao is grown in rural Ecuador
  • Visit a Kallari Chocolate cooperative to see how the artisanal chocolate is produced and sample some for yourself!
  • Enjoy a traditional lunch prepared by a Kichwa (Quichua) family

Description

The Kallari Chocolate cooperatives are run by the indigenous Quichua people in rural Ecuador. These small-scale cacao entrepreneurs decided to start their own cooperative for their chocolate after making a meager living from mass exportation with multinational companies. Nowadays, these cacao farmers make a fair wage from their cacao and produce their own unique Kallari bars. On this tour, you’ll have the chance to learn about this grassroots industry from the cacao producers themselves and taste the exquisite artisanal chocolate they produce!
