We believe in cocoa families and in cocoa as an opportunity
At Luker Chocolate, we are committed to small-scale farmers, which is why we have established a network of alliances with over 50 cocoa growers associations allowing us to guarantee the purchase of the entire harvest of each association, helping to create the maximum value possible for the farmers and to benefit more than 7500 Colombian families.
Over 60 years ago, we understood that we had to go beyond the purchase process and decided to train the small-scale farmers through Granja Luker. By doing so, we contributed to increased productivity and good agricultural practices in order to improve the income of cocoa families, along with their quality of life.
To do so, we developed a pedagogic model that allows the farmers to access the best education resulting from over 100 years of research at Luker Chocolate and the expertise of our technicians.
We have also accompanied the Colombian Government in illicit crop substitution programmes, offering a legal alternative through cocoa to over 5000 families that lived in illegality.
