Cocoa farmer and chocolate maker
Khun Pathom (which means Mr Pathom) runs the Thai Coffee & Cocoa Cooperative, based in Northern Thailand. He works directly with local farmers by supplying trees from his nurseries and offering information and support to them throughout the growing process. He then buys their harvests at fair prices and processes them through to cocoa beans at his processing facility in Lampang, in the beautiful and hilly northern region of Thailand. Currently he exports to Japan and Singapore. The two biggest farms in the Coop are located in Lampang and Nakorn Si Thammarat and operated by community enterprise - and between them they now have around 21,000 trees. The entire process starting from farm to dry fermented beans is done with full traceability. Siamaya Chocolate has worked directly with Khun Pathom for a number of years, together learning and cultivating the art of sustainable farming and turning the cacao into world class chocolate bars!
