Be the Change you want to see in the World. República del Cacao is now a BCorp.
República del Cacao was born with a purpose: to create the most authentic Latin American chocolate hand in hand with local communities, developing sustainable fine cacao production at its source. Our actions have allowed us to become a local brand with global impact. Our commitment to the protection of Fine cacao in our region and the farmer goes beyond buying at fair prices, but extends to technical support and the development of responsible farming practices, promoting the protection of native varieties of fine cacao.
Throughout our journey, we have accomplished the highest standards of social and environmental development, transparency and corporate responsibility, while searching to balance purpose and profit. Today we are proud to receive the B Corp certification, as a recognition of our efforts to develop an inclusive, equitable, and sustainable economic model for all.

The B Corp certification process has enabled us to highlight the actions undertaken by our team since the launch of Republica del Cacao, always focusing on maximizing our social, economic, and environmental impact.
To accomplish this certification we completed the rigorous B Impact assessment, which includes five categories: corporate governance, workers, community, environment, and clients.
This certification is an integral part of our sustainable business strategic vision, validating our impact model and socio-environmental leadership. As a B Corporation, República del Cacao’s mission will be expressed in our company’s articles of association. This will guarantee that our long-term business growth will reflect our core values and purpose of using business as a force for good.
With every certification comes a recertification process. As such, we know that B Corp will be a motivation to continue innovating transversally across our value chain to build upon a sustainable and purposeful brand. As our strategic ally, the B Corp organization will help validate our commitment and purpose driven actions to positively impact all our stakeholders.
Around the world there are more than 2.500 B corporations, certified in more than 130 industries from 60 countries with a single unifying objective: redefine the meaning of success in business. We are proud to form part of a global movement of people, which use business as a force for good, in order to generate a positive impact where they work, to reduce inequality, poverty levels, promote a healthier environment, strengthen communities, and create high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
