The cacao is grown as an intercrop along with coconut, nutmeg, pepper and banana, creating a system of interdependent flora - the cornerstone of permaculture - adding to the flavor nuances of the cacao beans. The plantation is pesticide free and managed using principles of aquaculture & permaculture, ensuring that trees get the best nutrition to produce great tasting cacao! Every year, farmers select the best trees for their breeding program to cater to increasing acreage and demand for cacao beans.
