Maker

Fjåk Chocolate

Fjåk Chocolate, Norway’s first bean to bar chocolate maker! Fjåk focuses on ethically traded, organic cacao beans while using fresh ingredients inspired by their surrounding Nordic nature. Starting the chocolate journey in 2015, owners Agur and Siv spent two years experimenting and perfecting their chocolate. Fjåk was officially launched in 2017 and already won multiple awards by 2018. The name Fjåk comes from the Hardanger dialect, where people in the region would refer to each other as fjåk. It roughly translates to ‘loveable’ or ‘honest’ and well chocolate is the most loveable thing in the world!

Cacao Region

Bundibugyo, Uganda

Bundibugyo is a small district in the Western Region of Uganda, directly bordering the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Subsistence agriculture and animal husbandry are the two major economic activities in the district. Despite its small size, it’s also the largest producer of cocoa in all of Uganda; the local enterprise of Latitude Trade Co. has played a large role in bringing their organic cacao to the craft chocolate market. Most of the cacao farmers in the region live off of earnings week-to-week and only have very small plots, so Latitude Trade Co. has organized 6 rural collection points for farmers to access each week and get paid immediately for their harvest.

Cacao Estate

Semuliki Forest

Located in Bundibugyo, Western Uganda, Semuliki Forest Cacao is grown by over a thousand organic smallholder farmers in the region, more than half of whom are women. Latitude Trade Co. (LTC), the company that processes and exports this cacao, has organized 6 rural collection points for farmers to access, where every week they can sell fresh into the network and receive cash payment immediately. Latitude's centralized fermentation facility and warehouse is strategically located in the village of Bumate, where they can receive optimal natural light and limited impact from rainfall. All Semuliki Forest cacao is certified organic.
