Definite is an artisan chocolate maker in the Dominican Republic. With their tree-to-bar bars, they already won awards at the Academy of Chocolate. Cacao from Öko Caribe was used for this bar. Öko-Caribe is a cocoa processor in the town of Pimentel in Duarte province in northern Dominican Republic.
Duarte province is the largest cocoa growing region in the country and Öko-Caribe maintains close relationships with more than 150 smallholders in the region who provide training and support for organic certification. Farmers harvest the cocoa pods, open them, extract the pulp-covered beans and bring them to Öko-Caribe, which then completes the fermentation and sun-drying process.
