Goodnow Farms Limited Release "Semuliki" 77% Dark Chocolate
Semuliki cacao is produced by the Latitude Trade Company, a Ugandan-registered social enterprise owned and managed by Jeff Steinberg. Originally from the US, Jeff has lived and worked in Sub-Saharan Africa for the past 5 years as a consultant on program design and impact evaluation for companies and public-sector actors working with smallholder farmers throughout the region.
The company employs four core management staff hailing from all corners of the country for procurement and operating the processing facility. Local farmers are engaged in the mobilization of farmers and collection of fresh cocoa during harvest days. They also make their own chocolate, adding value and increasing the compensation for farmers.
In each agricultural area, community members and leaders are engaged and paid for their regular assistance in mobilizing farmers as well as coordinating harvest and weighing. Most local farmers have 1-2 hectares of cacao trees either owned as family land or leased from other farmers. Wet cocoa is purchased from over 500 contracted smallholder farmers.
