Peru, Ucayali River
The Ucayali River is the main headstream of the Amazon River. Ucayali River Cacao is a central fermentary that works with cocoa farmers along the Ucayali River outside of the Peruvian city of Pucallpa. Working with around 400 small-holder farmers with one-to-three hectares of land apiece, Ucayali River Cacao buys wet cacao at a premium price, giving economic opportunity to otherwise remote communities.
