Product Details

Region and Country

Rwenzori Mountains, on the border between Congo (D.R.C.) and Uganda

Story

Ancient Greek chronicles identified the origin of the Nile as the Mountains of the Moon, a range of snow-capped mountains named as such by the locals because of their bright whiteness. Years later these mountains were identified as the Rwenzori Mountains.

Cocoa is cultivated by small hold farmers at the foot of the mountains along with other crops such as vanilla and coffee. The cacao trees usually grow in the shade of other fruit and timber trees. Wet cacao is collected from these farmers and brought to the local fermentation centre located in the village.

Mountains of the Moon ™ supports these farmers to organize themselves into cooperatives and have access to certification, training, better prices and new markets.
