Meet the Presenter Leslie Agyare, Three Mountain Cocoa, Ghana
The journey into the world of cocoa and chocolate began from the 40.4 hectares of his historical family land located in the Eastern region. In less than two years, this journey has expanded to include 2,271 farmers from 15 communities and span an area of 6,562.17 hectares producing over 3,000 tonnes of cocoa beans.
The land is enclosed by three mountains that are part of UNESCO's reforestation and conservation program for tropical rainforests. The aim of TMC in direct support of the farmer communities is to create a natural, organic, and authentic raw material for the creation of chocolate products by international artisans.
This process is supported by the establishment of a cooperative designed to support cocoa farmers with the implementation of best management practices and environmentally responsible farm management. The co-operative also provides financial resources along with community and individualised support in the conversion to certified.
“My vision for Three Mountains Cocoa is to create a premium organic cocoa brand underpinned by an active socially responsible business model. With the correct approach, quality natural ingredients can go hand in hand with sustainable farming that removes the risks of harmful chemicals, and I am passionate about making this happen.”
