WELCOME TO CACAO ORO
FUTURE IN ALL ITS DIMENSIONS
Promoting rapid economic, industrial and enviromentally sustainable growth for the region.
The Cacao Oro de Nicaragua group was founded in 2014 to develop large-scale, certified cocoa plantations in Nicaragua. With the Company’s farm in the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua entering production, the future goal is to work with the region’s farmers to develop cocoa as a major economic crop for Nicaragua’s Atlantic coast.
CACAO AND COFFEE
Large scale, sustainable
As a large, industrial-scale (3,500 hectare) agroforestry company located in RACCN (Region Autonoma de la Costa Caribe Norte) in North Eastern Nicaragua, we focus on reclaiming and reforesting land by planting native, precious hardwood trees, fine-flavor cacao varietals, and genetically advanced, rust-free Robusta coffee on restored land. The company’s efforts are reflected not only in restored landscapes on degraded land, but also in better lives for our 500+ employees and for the neighboring communities surrounding our farm.
COdN is committed to Sustainability / Social Impact and collaborates with a diverse network of stakeholders, institutions, and development organizations. We adhere to high standards outlined in our ESMS and Annual Operating Plan, focusing on circularity and stakeholder engagement in our strategic framework. Cacao Oro’s efforts in sustainability, environmental stewardship, and gender equality continue as a positive change within the cocoa industry and the communities it serves.
Today’s global chocolate/confectionary industry has well-defined requirements for their supply chains that include: sustainable certification; full operational transparency; traceability; and environmental and social responsibility. Protection of existing rain forest, as well as continual reforestation efforts, are also key. These are Cacao Oro’s starting points as well.
