Celebrating our women farmers - Dominican Republic
We're celebrating our women farmers with a special launch on International Women's Day.
Idelsa Brito is a cacao farmer, and mum of three children. Idelsa was born in the Yaiba Abajo community, and her farm is in the Yaiba Arriba community.
She has 2.5 acres of cacao in the San Francisco de Macoris region of the Dominican Republic and works with Oko Caribe, a centralized post harvest processing company that works with 180 farmers in the area to produce fine flavor cacao.
The Oko Caribe cacao has won many international awards for its use in chocolate bars globally.
