We are a two-women company working in the commodity sector of cacao. One Venezuelan and one Dutch lady, starting six months ago to bring good quality cacao beans to the market in Europe. We work with farmers, who we connect to buyers in Europe. No middle men. We create bridges between the supply and demand side. Our main work is that we import good, unique bean varieties from South America, bring these containers to Amsterdam and sell the beans. We obtain higher prices, which flows back to farmers in Venezuela and Ecuador.
Our core business is logistics, distribution and sales, but we also offer consultancy services to cocoa traders, chocolate manufacturers, governments and NGOs. We mainly advise on sustainable supply chains. We love our work and are happy to be travelling so much.
We also talk and write about good chocolate to consumers, in magazines, social media and tv. We do this so that people know and understand why good chocolate tastes so much better than what we know from most supermarket brands.
Gaia, to us, stands for connecting to the earth. Gaia, ancestral mother of all life, is about connecting, motherhood, nature and the trees.
We are looking for a style that breathes elegance and femininity (but not girly!), professionalism, depth, nature (we love botanic colors), trust and openness (space, lightness, transparency).
