Maya Mountain Cacao, Belize has been one of the most widely used origins in craft chocolate since its founding in 2010, and has inspired similar smallholder farmer models in other origin countries globally. Come learn more about the fascinating history of cacao in Belize and the work that Maya Mountain pioneered in connecting craft chocolate makers to the indigenous Q'eqchi' and Mopan producers in Belize. We will also share the challenges associated with being a pioneer in the space and what we have learned over the years, as well as share information about the future of this origin and the importance of long-term partnerships with chocolate makers.
