Pacari Chocolate is a family-owned company, dedicated to making the highest quality organic chocolate from Ecuador.
Since 2002 they have worked with cacao growers and acquired knowledge that enables us to create a fine chocolate with the best flavour and texture possible, at the source of the treasured fine flavour cacao. An essential ingredient is being involved in the entire process - from working directly with the farmers to designing the packaging, and in every step in between. Preserving the native Arriba Nacional cacao, they developed Pacari chocolate - the first single-origin organic chocolate made entirely in Ecuador.
Pacari works in small batches using carefully selected ingredients to bring you an unforgettable chocolate experience. The word Pacari means "nature" in Quechua, an indigenous language of the Andean region. The name was chosen to evoke all that their chocolate is about: the best products from the earth, all natural and 100% Ecuadorian.
Pacari continues to seek out innovative ways to bring out the best in the fine flavour Ecuadorian (Arriba Nacional) cacao, from their Raw chocolate line to their latest range of dark chocolate with flavours from across the Andes.
At Pacari they work directly with small scale farmers, not middle men, to ensure that they are fairly compensated for their products. They pay a significant premium over market prices so that the producers capture sufficient value for their hard work and can continue their sustainable farming methods, preserving the genetic diversity of cacao in Ecuador.
Pacari is located within a few hours drive from most of our producers, and we work closely with them to help improve their organic agriculture processes and bean quality. Because we have been able to build a trusted business relationship and provide advisory services as part of our partnership, we have developed long term commitments with each of our producers
