Transparency Matters

Unlike Fair Trade cacao, which requires farmers to go through a lengthy and costly process just to ensure they are being paid a commodity price, direct trade establishes relationships with farmers and reports on the transactions to the buyers. Typically, the farmgate price is more than the commodity price.

Lacuna Cacao goes a step forward and encourages our buyers to connect with the farmers through travel or calls that can be coordinated through our office. We believe that a report is just scratching the surface of direct trade and we seek to establish a true working relationship between the buyer and the farmer.
