Dari K is a comprehensive cacao manufacturer that covers technical guidance to Indonesian cacao farmers, cultivation, harvest, and fermentation of cacao beans, as well as chocolate manufacturing at chocolatiers in Kyoto.
Our corporate philosophy is "Changing the world through cacao." Based on this idea, we have established partnerships with cacao producers in Sulawesi Island, Indonesia, which is the second largest cacao beans producers in the world. By providing technical guidance to the local farmers, we aim to create a system that generates added-values. As a result, we have been successful in sourcing high quality cacao beans.
In the past, Indonesian cacao beans were not favored from both Japanese and international markets because of its low quality (weak aroma and strong acidity) due to the lack of fermentation. Thus, Indonesian cacao beans were traded in an inappropriate price which caused a vicious cycle of demotivating cacao farmers to produce the beans.
To change this situation, Dari K educated the local farmers to improve the quality and productivity of cacao beans. By this, we successfully achieved to secure good cacao beans with an ensured traceability - a quality that trading company cannot gain by merely importing cacao that are already available in the market. While the demands towards cacao is globally skyrocketing, we are different in that we can ensure a stable supply from a dedicated area; farmers from Polewali, Sulawesi Island in Indonesia which is the second largest producers in the world.
