Sourcing the Beans

Jute Bag

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 the United States and are then driven the rest of the way to Logan, Utah.

The Five Countries Where Aggie Chocolate Beans are Sourced: 

Maya Mountain, Belize

Costa Esmeraldas, Ecuador

Kokoa Kamili, Tanzania

Ambanja, Madagascar

Ucayali River Cacao, Peru
