Loon Chocolate

75% Maya Mountain, Belize

Founded in 2010, Maya Mountain Cacao (MMC) put Belize on the craft chocolate map as a pioneer in the centralized fermentery social enterprise model, and the first exporter in the country to produce high-quality, centrally-fermented cacao for the U.S. craft chocolate market. MMC works with 350+ certified organic smallholder cacao farming families in the Toledo and South Stann Creek districts, most of whom are indigenous Q’eqchi’ and Mopan Maya and who have been producing cacao for generations. MMC’s 100% Belizean Maya team centrally processes all cacao at a post-harvest facility where three unique stages of sun drying create optimal flavor. MMC was awarded an Heirloom Cacao Preservation (HCP) designation in 2014,
