Meet the cacao growers who with the help of the staff and customers of The Fuel Card Group are planting, cultivating, harvesting and fermenting their way to saving their rainforest.

 

Cacao, the key ingredient in chocolate, is the main livelihood for over 300 families in our Ashaninka Project.

Each year, they harvest, ferment and sell 12 million cocoa beans. This income enables our partners to turn away the loggers and keep their rainforest standing.
