Gran Nativo Blanco
Gran Nativo Blanco translates into “Grand Native White”. It is a very special and elegant cacao with a high proportion of white beans- Hidden for more than a century, this gem from nature was rediscovered in 2008 on the small cacao fields by San Juan de Bigotes, in Piura, North of Peru. With the support of Cooperative Norandino the smallholder’s cacao farmers of the region identified the best cacao trees and reintroduced this ancient cacao varietal. Today Gran Nativo Blanco is the most awarded cacao from Peru and is recognized for its delicate flavours, aromas and fragrances.
Ultra-premium cacao, winner of the 2013 Peruvian Gold Cacao Award. This cacao grows on the hills around Chililique, and benefits from very favorable climate conditions. The cacao growers are smallholders that live and cultivate cacao around this community, located in the District of Chulucanas, Piura, North of Peru.
Fifty percent of the members of this small cooperative are women that with hard work and dedication produce one of the most flavourful cacao beans of Peru. Cacaotales is working directly with these producers promoting these wonderful cacao beans and supporting gender equality.
