About Rio Nuevo
Our aim is to help farmers in Ecuador to improve their livelihoods, we want to do this through direct trade. Around one hundred thousand families depend on cacao crops. Our dream is to raise the bar and see a real change in how the chocolate industry can help develop sustainable livelihoods for cocoa-farming communities
We believe in relationships and empowerment, not only to grow economically but in community. We believe in people. This is why we buy directly, to ensure the farmers get a fair price for their produce and in return we get fantastic cocoa beans to make delicious chocolate.
