We want our products to have a positive impact. An impact in a region of the world that is often forgotten in the global economy of the 21st century. Despite social inequality and poverty you’ll find bright-eyed children, warm-hearted people and a unique landscape here.
Tanzania is very much defined by its agriculture, many people make their living from farming and are dependent on the prices paid for their products on the global market.
Furthermore large landowners preside over the majority of land areas. This complicates the situation of the cocoa farmers and causes social and economic problems in Mbeya.
We believe in entrepreneurship and its positive impact on social development. That’s why myChoco lives by the motto “help for self-help”, because this is the only way for development aid to truly succeed. We want to implement local projects that allow cocoa farmers in Tanzania to play a self-determined role in ecological and economic progress.
The best is yet to come. With every bar of chocolate, you make more and more projects in Mbeya possible. Small steps that make a big difference.
