Community Supported Economy

The Project

Teikei Cacao is a project based on Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). We connect cacao producers with cacao consumers. Forming consumer cooperatives we finance a share of their harvest.


Cacao producers face numerous economic, social, environmental and political challenges which threaten their traditional lifestyles. Through CSA we support their way of life and we share their cacao harvest, including the risks.

What is Cacao?

Kakaw is a word originated from the Nahua language in Mexico to refer to the seeds obtained from the Theobroma Cacao tree.

The modern word “cacao” is a Spanish adaptation of the original Nahua term.
