SUSTAINABLE LARGE SCALE
Cacao Oro’s large 3500 hectare (single location) industrial scale cocoa operation is designed to generate significantly higher margins than small holders through higher crop yields, higher tree densities, use of better yielding and disease resistant varietals. The employment of farming best practices such as efficient fertilizer use, crop protection, and proper tree maintenance increases profitability along with the benefit of proper plant maintenance and sanitation training for disease avoidence.
A CULTURE OF EXCELLENCE
At our core, we are stewards of the earth, committed to the restoration and reforestation of our land. Through meticulous efforts, we plant native, precious hardwood trees alongside exquisite fine-flavor cacao varietals and genetically advanced, rust-free Robusta coffee. This harmonious blend not only rejuvenates the soil but also enriches the biodiversity of our surroundings.
FOSTERING A CULTURE OF EXCELLENCE
Cacao Oro’s management team is fully-integrated with dedicated agronomists and environmental sustainability experts who have several decades of experience. Long-term leadership is in place, along with a talent promotion track to keep and encourage properly trained managers as we continue to grow our Central American operation.
IDEAL FARMING CONDITIONS
Nicaragua's agricultural sector plays a significant role in the country's economy, contributing to 32% of its GDP and accounting for 54% of its exports. Key agricultural exports include coffee, beef, and sugar. Nicaragua boasts fertile volcanic soil, making it conducive for agriculture. The country benefits from abundant water resources, with an annual water availability of 35,000 cubic meters per capita, significantly higher than the Central American and Caribbean average. This, coupled with ideal soil and climate conditions, makes Nicaragua suitable for large-scale farming, reducing susceptibility to diseases.
Nicaragua has some of the most fertile and largely volcanic soil in Central America. Additionally, Nicaragua is one of the most water rich countries in Latin America,
Nicaragua has a tropical climate, with two primary seasons; dry and rainy, with the dry running typically between December and May and the rainy season falling between June and December.
Cacao Oro’s Rosita farm is located nine kilometers north of the town of Las Breñas which is situated directly on the main East/West highway 21B, 90 kilometers from the eastern port of Puerto Cabezas.
Nicaragua being a predominantly agrarian country, the labor supply and available skill sets provide a strong farming base to promote sustainable growth in the country.
