Big Tree Farms offers the worlds only verifiably Truly RawTM cacao. They spent years developing a low temperature process to maximize the nutritional content whilst not compromising the sensual flavor we all expect from a high quality chocolate. The slow roasting process keeps the beans under 118˚F/45˚C via slow stone grinding the aromatic nibs during the refining process.
Big Tree Farms is the global pioneer of coconut sugar, having introduced the world’s first certified organic coconut sugar in 2008 and the first Certified Fair Trade coconut sugar in 2014. They are the only vertically integrated brand of coconut sugar on the global market, which means they work directly with thousands of family farmers, harvesting the nectar from their own trees, processing the nectar at their own factories and shipping directly to their customer’s world-wide. This hands-on oversight allows them to ensure the product’s purity, quality, integrity and traceability.
