Baianí chocolate bars are made with cocoa bean from Vale Potumuju plantation in Arataca, Bahia, Brazil. Bianai owners, Juliana and Tuta, are descendants of cacao farmers. They were both in the music industry, Tuta a producer, Juliana a professional singer. They returned to their origins and starting to make chocolate. The Vale Potumuji plantation they now own and make chocolate from has grown cacao since around 1900. Agroforestry is a key to the sustainability of the plantation, multiple crops are grown in and around cacao to facilitate a fertile and robust farming.www.baiani.com.br
Baiani make and use their own cacao butter to match the beans used in each bar.
