Cocoa farmer and chocolate maker

Rio Juruá

In 2016 the NGO SOS Amazônia started a project called Values of the Amazon which involved 9 cooperatives along rivers of the Upper Amazon Basin, one of which is the Juruá River. The cooperatives joined together to collect natural rubber, seed oils such as murmuru, and cacao.

Initially SOS Amazonia worked with 26 families for harvesting wild cacao trees. Thanks to abundant harvests and increased livelihoods, the project expanded to include 16 additional families. Then in 2020, the American company A Priori Specialty Foods joined Luisa Abram Chocolates to engage even more families.

Besides their income from wild cacao, the community supports itself through fishing and subsistence farming.

Luisa Abram
Founded in 2014, Luisa Abram is a chocolate maker that dedicates itself to sourcing micro-lot, wildly grown cacao from the Amazon Rainforest. They partner up with local riverside communities that collect, ferment and dry the cocoa beans in the forest. Eco-friendly bean collecting empowers native communities, builds local economies, and encourages rainforest conservation. The chocolate is made small-scale in São Paulo, Brazil by the Abram-Banks family: Luisa, Andre, Mirian and Andrea. Luisa, the eponymous founder of the brand, values commitment to quality in every stage of making a differentiated product. The family take a very hands-on approach to chocolate-making, controlling and overlooking every stage of the process, from the harvesting of the cacao to the finished bar and logistics....
