Cocoa farmer and chocolate maker

Tusiime Evarence

Latitude chocolate bars are not single-estate. They are made with cacao sourced from over 2500 certified organic farmers in Uganda. Tusiime Evarence is one of thousands of farmers who have long-lasting working relationships with Latitude Chocolate.

Tusiime Evarence lives on her 5-acre farm with her husband and three children. The cacao plantation takes almost three acres and the rest is dedicated to other produce. They grow cassava, banana and yams, as well as beans in between cocoa trees to make the most of the land. They do all the pruning, use banana leaves as compost and manure as fertilizer.

Now she sells fresh cocoa to Latitude at stable prices.They have been collaborating since 2020, which has allowed Tusiime and her family to save money and build their own house.

The award-winning cacao used in Latitude's chocolate is sourced directly from certified organic farmers in Western Uganda. Each week during harvest season, the staff pays contracted suppliers cash on delivery for fresh cacao at rural collection points that are walking distance from their farms. The cacao is then centrally box fermented and sun-dried at Latitude's nearby fermentary to ac...
