About Kokoa Kamili Plantation

The cacao beans grown in the Kilombero Valley are sourced from Kokoa Kamili, which was founded by Brian LoBue and Simran Bindra, who have backgrounds in international development throughout eastern and southern Africa.

Prior to Kokoa Kamili, a single buyer dominated the area – the local arm of one of the world’s largest soft commodity trading houses. A sole buyer meant it had the power to set the price for cocoa, and farmers had little alternatives. Historically, farmers in the Kilombero Valley received some of the lowest prices for cocoa in the country. In Kokoa Kamili’s first year alone Kilombero farmers received the highest prices in Tanzania for their cocoa. 

Today, Kokoa Kamili works with nearly 3000 smallholder farmers, most of whom farm between 0.5-2 acres of cocoa. Kokoa Kamili pays a premium - well above the market rate - to farmers for their ‘wet’ cocoa, and conducts its own fermentation and drying. By taking over the fermentation and drying process, Kokoa Kamili can produce more consistently higher quality cocoa beans. This method gives farmers a reduced workload, along with greater compensation, and the farmers are paid immediately after the cooperative receives its wet beans.

Kokoa Kamili also distributes cocoa seedlings to farmers in the community. In the past three years, they have aided in the planting of over 140,000 trees.

Kokoa Kamili is situated in the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, an area known for its abundance of bird and mammal wildlife. It is most famous for the eleven different primate species, bird life, and is one of three remaining sites that support Savannah Elephants in a mountainous environment. Current estimates say that 2,000 elephants reside in and around the Udzungwa area.

BOUT FOUNDRY CHOCOLATE

New Zealand brand Foundry are scooping up awards for their hand crafted, micro-batch chocolate.

Chocolate maker, David, is obsessive about making fine chocolate from just two ingredients - cocoa bean and sugar, which means his chocolate starts at 70% cocoa solids.

In addition, the beans he carefully sources are of exceptional quality which mans each chocolate has a distinct flavour 'personality' - believe us when we say not all 70% chocolates taste the same!

Foundry Chocolate celebrate vintage chocolate i.e. 2019 and each bar is hand numbered and signed - so make sure you check out your bar to see what you have.
