Gran Nativo Blanco translates into “Grand Native White”. It is a very special and elegant cacao with a high proportion of white beans- Hidden for more than a century, this gem from nature was rediscovered in 2008 on the small cacao fields by San Juan de Bigotes, in Piura, North of Peru.
With the support of Cooperative Norandino the smallholder’s cacao farmers of the region identified the best cacao trees and reintroduced this ancient cacao varietal. Today, Gran Nativo Blanco is the most awarded cacao from Peru and is recognized for its delicate flavours, aroma’s and fragrances.

Solkiki Chocolatemaker has earned over 60 major international awards for over 20 products. Their micro-batch craft chocolate is made from bean to bar using ultra-premium cacao beans directly-traded with special tropical farms.
~99% of the global chocolate trade uses the same type of cacao: easy to grow, high yield, very poor flavour profile. This is why dark chocolate is typically cheap & tastes bitter: it‘s an industrial product, chemically processed and farmed under horrific conditions. Even Fair Trade is not effective for most cacao famers, so we avoid that industry.
Solkiki assess a lot of fine flavour cacao and source the best via a very short chain. Direct trade protects vulnerable rainforests and wildlife while improving the lives of farming communities and quality of cacao long-term. As a bonus, Solkiki’s minimal-process, bean-to-bar approach creates delicious chocolate! We remove the middlemen and encourage farmers to grow these fickle trees, promoting equality, biodiversity, sustainability, nutrition and flavour.
Our sourcing principle is more than simply paying what the farmers ask.
At Solkiki, direct trade means we work in partnership with farmers and fermenters to improve both quality of cacao and livelihoods, long term.
