Be support in business planning, marketing, and customer service. Learn about the whole fabrication process of the best chocolate in the world 

The project

Vegan, sustainable, fair trade and delicious? All in one, is what you´re going to find at this project!

Learn and assist in the process of the fabrication of one of the best chocolates in Ecuador and of course, in the world. But that´s not all, in this factory they don´t like to waste anything, so they use the other parts of the fruit to make cacao butter, syrup, soaps, wine, tea, and even BBQ sauce. 

 You´ll be able to work in some different areas like: business plan & management, production plant, customer service, marketing and social media.
