SPAGnVOLA: Empowering Cacao Farmers

“So, one of the things that we have to remember is that God doesn’t make imperfection!” -
Eric Reid, SPAGnVOLA.

A philosophy that we hold dear to us is making the best out of the best and ensuring that the farmers that have and grow the best can cultivate and sell the best.  Being a farmer first, I have been given a God given ability to take the richness the cocoa beans have to offer and turn them into the best premium single estate chocolates.  To keep this ability to myself is a disservice to the farmers in countries that have quality cocoa beans; to keep the process to myself that has made me and my wife so successful.  

“At the end of the day that’s what we are here on earth, is to be able to empower others to be self-sufficient and have an opportunity that’s not been given to them before.  That’s the philosophy.  That simple.” - Eric Reid, SPAGnVOLA.

Visiting Ondo State, Nigeria I was able to share that process with local cocoa farmers, and others, so everyone can turn the lands precious commodities into their own products for consumers.  SPAGnVOLA’s philosophy is in correlation with Ondo State's’ Governor Mimiko and he wishes to see the most come from the land’s commodities, but it must start with the farmers.  I was fortunate to have been able to share SPAGnVOLA’s process so that farmers and countries can put forth the effort to ensure quality comes out of the farm.
