Story

Cocoa has been grown in Madagascar and especially in the Sambirano region since the beginning of the 20th century. Initially restricted to colonial plantations, expansion of cocoa growing really started in the 60’s when smallholder farmers started to grow it. It is nowadays the main crop in the region that provides a regular income for a large majority of the farmers.
MAVA is a young company that is restoring a former colonial plantation. It produces its own grand crus on 8 different farms spread along the Sambirano valley on a property of 635 hectares. Besides managing its own plantation, MAVA has partnered with local smallholder producers in the area. Their fresh beans are collected and fermented and dried at MAVA’s post harvesting facilities, using its own post-harvest treatment procedures in order to assure a high quality and consistent product..
