Academy of Chocolate Awards, Bronze 2017
Approximately a ten hour drive from Tanzania's main city of Dar es Salaam, Kokoa Kamili is based in the village of Mbingu (Kiswahili for Heaven) in the Kilombero Valley area of the Morogoro region bordering the Udzungwa Mountain National Park. Mbingu is fairly rural with no access to electricity or tarred roads for about sixty kilometers.
Kokoa Kamili pays premiums to farmers in the region who grow quality cacao to encourage them to seek quality over quantity.
