Kokoa Kamili

Their cocoa has gone from some of Tanzania's cheapest sold cocoa to some of the highest priced since 2013. Kokoa kamili collaborate with approx. 2400 smallholder farmers, that are selling their wet cacao at better prices (Farmgate price of 2.01 USD per kg). The homebase of the operation is in the small village of Mbingu, which translates into "Heaven".
