Fijian bean-to-bar chocolate

The story behind our exclusive collaboration with a Fijian cacao farm.

We are proud to announce that CocoaMo is the only company in the UK  with exclusive use of this wonderful cacao.

The Farm

In 2019, I spent some time in communication with a Swedish Husband & Wife team, who followed their dreams to become cacao farmers, on the beautiful island of Fiji.  The pair still reside in Sweden for now, but are hoping to move to their farm in Fiji in the near future.

Michael Olsen and his wife Jytte, bought the plantation in 2012, and in 2015 built an off-grid sustainable house within the cacao farm, using the carpentry skills of the local villagers.

This self-sufficient house, has an apartment for the Farm's caretaker, his wife and daughter, along with separate living accommodation for the Olsen's when they visit. It also has separate guest accommodation for any other visitors to the farm.

It has a dry store for the harvested beans, a small experimental kitchen workshop for chocolate making, and is surrounded by pineapple trees, hibiscus, frangipani and newly planted vanilla vines.

See our slide show below for more....
