Pacari Chocolate History
Pacari Chocolate is a Ecuadorian family-owned company, dedicated to making the highest quality organic dark chocolate from Ecuador.
Santiago Peralta and Carla Barboto built a business based on socially and environmentally sustainable principles to ensure that their products support the well-being of the land and the community around it. Combining a passion for sustainable business and a commitment to preserving the native Arriba Nacional cacao, they developed Pacari Chocolate - the first single-origin organic chocolate made entirely in Ecuador.
Since 2002, they have worked with cacao growers and acquired knowledge that enables them to create a fine chocolate with the best flavour and texture possible. An essential ingredient is being involved in the entire process - from working directly with the farmers to designing the packaging, and every step in between.
Pacari works in small batches using carefully selected ingredients to bring you an unforgettable chocolate experience.The word Pacari means "nature" in Quechua, an indigenous language of the Andean region. The name was chosen to evoke all that the chocolate is about: high quality natural ingredients and 100% Ecuadorian.
Pacari continues to seek out innovative ways to bring out the best in the finest Ecuadorian cacao (Arriba Nacional) from the Raw chocolate line to the latest range of dark chocolate with flavours from across the Andes.
