IT IS OUR MISSION TO SUSTAINABLY PRODUCE THE MOST AUTHENTIC LATIN AMERICAN CHOCOLATE

Ecuador, the
home of cacao

Ecuador’s unique equatorial climate provides the perfect environment for growing the world’s finest cacao - Cacao Arriba. Cacao has been revered in Latin America for over 5,000 years. Spanish explorers loved it so much they called it the ‘Food of the Gods’.

OVER 85% OF THE WORLD’S FINEST CACAO COMES FROM LATIN AMERICA. THAT’S WHY WE CALL IT 'THE GOLD SEED'.

Where our
journey started

In 2005, our Ecuadorian founders visited a chocolate boutique Paris, asking to taste the best chocolate in the world. To their surprise, they were told it came from Ecuador. This moment sparked the beginning of our journey, a mission to locally produce the finest chocolate.

The best of
both worlds

Our chocolate is produced locally using only Latin American ingredients. We combine these amazing raw products with the most advanced knowledge and techniques, brought by the finest French chocolatiers. We like to think of this as the best of both worlds.

Our Products

We have the world’s finest cacao right on our doorstep. Our sugar is grown locally and our milk produced by small communities of dairy farmers. No wonder our chocolate is so delicious.

Our Story

Our journey started over ten years ago when we set ourselves an ambitious mission, to locally produce the most authentic Latin American chocolate, protecting and developing sustainable fine cacao production.

Our community

Let’s change the world one cacao bean at a time. Help us support local communities by creating direct relationships with farmers, empowering local entrepreneurs and inviting chefs from around the world to join La República.
