Did you know...

The world’s supply of high quality, flavorful cacao is threatened by global pressures of environmental change, deforestation, and economic influences.

How you can help

While the majority of cacao tree producers are increasing the production of flavorless high-yielding chocolate for mass produced chocolate bars (containing high levels of sugar and added artificial flavors), HCP is striving to preserve the rich biodiversity of cacao trees in Ecuador. These Heirloom trees make balanced, unique, fine flavor chocolate possible for future generations to experience.

About this nonprofit

HCP's mission is to identify and preserve fine flavor "Heirloom" cacao varieties for the conservation of biological diversity and the empowerment of farming communities. HCP has identified 16 Heirloom designees around the world and is running programs at 6 of the designee sites to support the development of best practices for the preservation of each unique heirloom cacao trees in 4 countries.
