We believe in the cocoa growing families and cocoa as an opportunity
At Luker Chocolate, we are committed to small farmers, which is why we have established ourselves as a network of partnerships with over 50 cocoa associations allowing us to guarantee the total purchase of the harvest of each association, helping to create the maximum value possible for the farmers and to benefit over 7500 Colombian families.
Over sixty years ago, we understood that we have to go beyond merely buying cocoa and we decided to train small farmers through Granja Luker, so as to help increase productivity and good agricultural practices in order to improve the income of farming families along with their quality of life.
To do so, we developed an educational model that provides farmers with access to better education resulting from over 100 years of research conducted by Luker Chocolate as well as the expertise of our technicians.
We have also accompanied the national government and worked on illicit crop substitution programmes, offering a legal exit way for over 5000 families that used to make their living from illegal crops and who are now growing cocoa.
