Pure blocks of Ceremonial Grade Criollo Cacao which has been grown, harvested, fermented, and dried by the Asháninka in ancient Cacao gardens in the rainforests of the lower Amazon basin in Peru. The Asháninka are known historically to be fiercely independent. They are striving to keep their cultural and environmental heritage despite pressure from the modernisation of the outside world. They live a lifestyle of subsistence but the forest they live in is under threat, particularly from illegal logging, palm oil production, and Coca growing for cocaine production.
Cacao is a vital crop for the Asháninka because it is best operated within a co-operative, which is perfect for the communal living of the tribe, provides protection of their land, they can promote organic and traditional farming methods and is a cash crop so that they can maintain their economic independence and sovereignty.
