Sourcing the Beans
Aggie Chocolate Factory's cocoa beans are sourced internationally from five countries. The sourcing process starts when the cacao pods are ripe and cut off the trees. Each pod contains the beans or cacao seeds. The seeds are then fermented and dried in preparation to be shipped. Once prepared for transportation, the seeds are then bagged in Jute bags and are then shipped all the way by boat to America and are then driven the rest of the way to Logan, Utah.
The Five Countries Where Aggie Chocolate Beans are Sourced:
Costa Esmeraldas, Ecuador
Kokoa Kamili, Tanzania
Ucayali River Cacao, Peru
