Founded in 2010, Maya Mountain Cacao (MMC) put Belize on the craft chocolate map as a pioneer in the centralised fermentery social enterprise model, and the first exporter in the country to produce high-quality, centrally-fermented cocoa for the craft chocolate market.
MMC works with 400+ certified organic smallholder cacao farming families based in the Toledo district of Belize. All MMC producers practice sustainable organic farming with fruit tree intercropping and habitat creation for animals. Cocoa is collected (and paid for) every two weeks, and brought to the processing facility, built in 2016.
In 2019, Maya Mountain Cacao was awarded a Cocoa of Excellence Award, which placed it within the Top 20 cocoas globally.
