Meet Reyna Flores

Reyna Flores was born in Mexico City and moved to southern Mexico, where she has worked as a dentist for more than 3 decades in the heart of cocoa tree plantations. There she got to know many cocoa producers from the area and the trouble they faced when the time came to sell their harvest.  The fact that they received so little pay for their hard work had an impact on Reyna.

Four years ago, she began thinking about retirement and what to do for the rest of her life. She almost automatically knew that she wanted to make chocolates. Her desire to give more value to the cocoa beans and achieve more economic stimuli for the hard work of the local farmers that had developed over the years led her to establish her own chocolate brand Síij Chocolate Ancestral.

“I declare myself chocoholic since I was very young, so I really love making chocolate. I am very happy in the environment of my chocolate salon, I believe one infuses feelings in the things one make, my chocolates go to the market loaded with love and empathy. My final goal is to develop a contemporary chocolate offer not only to the local market but to the national and international markets. Historical background has shown us that Tabasco, Mexico is the cradle of chocolate. Let me tell you that Siij Chocolate Ancestral S A S was born in that same cradle, a brand with cultural heritage from the past and vision for the future. At Síij Chocolate Ancestral, we keep in mind the historical traditions of the Olmec culture when making chocolate from washed cocoa beans. It is good to be lavado it is good to be delicious” – Reyna Flores
