After a very delicious Liquid Cacao evening with Floris from Ms Sunshine Farms we asked her share her inspiring story. So here it is, along with a few photos from our Cacao tasting.

Farmers and families first
We put our Farmers and their families first. Few growers are dedicated to traditional methods and maintaining a pure strain quality of beans. This is our Mission. Village elder and grower Faletoeifo Aigoa is teaching us to listen to the land, the cacao trees and to our hearts as the source of our inspiration and actions.
We are only working with our Village community because we have a lot to improve in this small place first; School buildings, Access road to the plantations and Fresh running water in every household. We believe it only takes a village and an idea to influence a nation.
We are also passionate about empowering our young men and women to see a future in Agriculture and more about anticipating a world shortage of food sources in the near future, which could put small nations like Samoa at risk of losing what little resources we already have.
Finally, we want to put Samoa on the World Map for growing the best quality trinitario beans for local and export markets.
Fa’afetai tele lava, ma ia manuia!
