NURSERY «SANTA HELENA»
Our cocoa nursery "Santa Helena" is located in the Olmec and Maya region known as "Plan Chontalpa", the location in the cocoa bean harvesting area is very important thanks to the qualities of the terrain and the climate, it also allows us to improve the quality of the cocoa and we minimize the transport times of the freshly cut cocoa to our plant.
We produce around 500’000 plants per year in a nursery and we serve more than 2’700 farmers, thanks to our sustainability program, we also created a special program to help cocoa producers to fight Moniliasis.
«SANTA HELENA» IN TABASCO
We are the first private company to invest in a cocoa fermenting plant in Mexico, in order to produce quality beans PREMIUM.
Through our innovation in the "Santa Helena" plant, we implemented the use of sun drying tunnels, thus drying the grains naturally in the sun (instead of artificially using gas), improving their natural qualities. This process takes between 4 and 5 days and allows the acidity to be removed and gives it an improved flavor.
