Headquartered on a 3-hectare farm in Calinan, Davao City, Philippines, Cacao Culture Farms is a social enterprise that seeks to empower local cacao farmers and communities.
It all started when Kenneth and his wife Shiela Reyes-Lao left their corporate lives in Manila to venture into the cacao farming industry in Davao. Initially, they started out with a cacao seedling nursery, catering to local farmers, while continuing to learn more about growing their own farm. But a few short years later, as fate would have it, neighboring cacao farms started to ask if Kenneth and Shiela were interested in purchasing their own harvests. This, as a result, fast-tracked the husband-and-wife tandem’s plans to manufacture cacao products of their own.
Today, Cacao Culture Farms produces cacao nibs, cacao tea, chocolate “tablea,” and more—all while giving back to the ever-growing cacao farming community in the Philippines. They continue striving to create high-quality, locally and ethically sourced cacao products to encourage local food entrepreneurs to support their business, as well as neighboring cacao farms in Davao. They hope to one day break into the global cacao scene, and put the Philippines on the map as premium creators of the pure chocolate beans.
