Malagos chocolates are one of the few tree-to-bar producers in the world. When the Puentespina brothers rented a farm in 2003 they realised it had old cacao trees. With a bit of work the trees were rehabilitated and they started making their own bars.
Now they are an award winning producer (world famous for their drinking and 100% chocolates). They are also committed to working with and improving conditions for other farmers in their community, and have turned part of their farm into a laboratory for locals to learn good agricultural practices in cacao farming.www.malagoschocolate.com
As well as making chocolate, Malagos also raise goats to make artisanal cheeses, grow and sell flowers & run a nature-themed resort on island of Mindanao!
