Pricing Policy - Our Commitment to Fairness and Sustainability

When you shop at VAICACAO, you support our project and help us in our commitment to the ethical production of unique Cacaos. Our commitment to sustainability and the well-being of our farmers is undeniable. The loyalty of customers like you has been instrumental in bringing about positive change in our industry.

During the turmoil of the pandemic, when many companies were rapidly increasing their prices, VAICACAO held prices steady and accepted these fluctuations in the hope that they were temporary. Now, in 2023, we have decided to rethink our pricing strategy and ask you to pay a little more for our Cacao.

From September 2023, our Cacao will be available in 180g and 400g bags, at the same price as our previously offered 200g and 500g bags.

Operating costs for us and for the farmers we work with have risen sharply in recent months. Our new prices reflect the impact of the ongoing global energy crisis, widespread inflation of goods and services, and the impact of climate change on Cacao harvests in Central America.

Cacao farming is becoming increasingly difficult, and it is thanks to the strength and perseverance of farmers in the country of origin that we can continue to deliver unique Cacao to your homes. But during our visits to the plantations this year, we learned that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find people who want to work in agriculture, as many young people are migrating to the USA.

We promise you that we will continue to offer the best quality and to ensure that the higher prices are used efficiently to cover our running costs and to secure the livelihoods and futures of the farmers. Our ethos revolves around sustainability, reduced plastic use and minimal waste generation. Charging a fair price is important to protect our artisanal processes and maintain our partnerships with farmers.
