Did you know there is more than cocoa beans? In collaboration with the start-up Koa, we make use of the white pulp of the cocoa fruit to pay an extra income to cocoa farmers. This income is paid directly to the smallholders, without going through middlemen. Koa pays the farmers on the same day and via mobile money. This ensures that the money is paid directly while allowing you to trace the payments back to the origin.
At Oberweis, we are committed to creating value in our products. In our search for the best cocoa, we always favour production from identifiable, organoleptically interesting value chains within a preserved ecosystem.
By buying cocoa as directly as possible, we strive to reduce the number of intermediaries in the chain. We believe that the pastry of tomorrow should be reasonably indulgent, and naturally good. Thus, let's do it.
As the processing site is mobile, Koa is able to process the cocoa fruits next to the cocoa farms, even in remote areas.
Solar power also makes it possible to immediately cool the fresh juice to guarantee the best quality. This is the first step of our value chain, in the heart of the tropical rainforest.
