About Location
Located in the Stann Creek District of Belize, the Che'il Mayan Chocolate Factory was established in 2010. Their initial objective was fo create an organic cacao beans market. However, there were difficulties in this endeavor as the target market to purchases cacao was further away from the farmers. Needless to say, a lot of the cacao beans were wasted. This led to the birth of the Che'il Mayan Chocolate Factory. "Che'il" is the Mopan Mayan word for "wild Mayan." Today, the factory produces chocolate bars in twelve different flavors and along with other delicacies such as truffles, chocolate wine, cacao tea and cacao nibs. Sound delicious! The factory also gives tours of their cacao farms and demonstrations of the chocolate-making process.
