From monoculture to Forest

site-pic

The reality is that monoculture timber plantations have a negative impact on communities and biodiversity. These plantations are not a solution to climate change nor to biodiversity loss.

The “From monoculture to Forest plan” means we clear, step by step, a 7-9 year old monoculture teak plantation and replace it with 11 different tropical tree species, restoring to a complex ecosystem, with a wide variety of plants and wild animals.

NO MONOCULTURE

CACAO: We plant cacao trees in their natural surrounding, growing a high quality cacao beans. Cacao trees in a forest are also less sensible for pests. To control pests and diseases, we use organic pesticides only.

BUILDING TROPICAL FORESTS:

AgriForest Finance forests are planted on degraded and pasture land, which provide new living space for many animals and plants and improve the soil quality. The ecosystem will be restored forever.

Rigorously Sustainable Original Beans

Original Beans Edel Weiss 40% (white chocolate)

original_beans_edel_weiss_40-_boxopen_chocolats-de-luxe-de_59-80_600x600

Organic white chocolate without vanilla. Cacao from the Yuna River Valley, Dominican Republic.

Rich notes of banana milk and cacao butter.

Original Beans are one of the most sustainable chocolate producers on the planet. For every one bar of their chocolate sold, one tree is planted.

Ingredients: direct trade cacao butter, raw cane sugar, whole milk.

Soy and gluten free. 100% organic.

Rainforests provide not only the delicious diversity of cacaos, but also most other biodiversity and freshwater, and a global climate system. Original Beans way of preserving them is its purest form. The fresh fruit from a fine cacao tree tastes heavenly. Can you distinguish those flavours in this chocolate?

White chocolate is milk chocolate without cacao solids -and usually without character. To offer you an exceptionally delicious white chocolate, this bar focuses on pure essentials: butter of a delicate Trinitario cacao from the Yuna River Valley (Dominican Republic), and milk from a Swiss alp. With no vanilla and lecithin added, a surprisingly pure chocolate moment is revealed.
