Cacao-Trace is a sustainable cocoa sourcing programme that focuses on better tasting chocolate, and in the process creates value for all, from farmer to consumer.
At Puratos we are committed to a sustainable future for chocolate. What sets our sustainable cocoa sourcing programme apart, is that our main focus is on taste and creating value for everyone, from the cocoa farmers to your customers, through taste improvement. The proof of the programme is in the tasting, and in the improved quality of life for cocoa farmers.
Cacao-Trace is far more than simply a programme or a brand. It's an entire community which stretches from the cocoa plantation to chocolate fans around the world, all united by the belief that a focus on taste is the only way to sustainable chocolate.
We – Puratos Grand-Place are conscious that supporting farmers is also about helping to reach a sustainable living income for them and their families. The chocolate bonus is the tool we believe could rebalance the power in the supply chains. Consumers and customers will be able to contribute to lift them out of poverty thanks to a fixed contribution on the price of the Cacao-Trace products. So when you buy Cacao-Trace chocolate products you are supporting the long-term supply of chocolate while directly helping to reduce poverty levels of cocoa farmers.
