Belize is a tiny Central American country south of the Mexican state of Yucatán and east of Guatemala. As a nation, it has an ancient cocoa-growing culture dating back to Mayan times.
As Valrhona’s local partner in Belize, Hummingbird Citrus is dedicated to encouraging small cocoa producers to farm quality yields, most particularly in the Toledo district in the country’s south.
Along the banks of the Xibun River in southern Belize, ancient Mayan civilizations made their home at the foot of the Maya Mountains and became the country’s first cocoa producers. While the nation’s official language is English, even today, Mayan dialects remain many Belizeans’ mother tongue. It is in this region of Belize, a true cocoa-growing hotspot in the Yamwits valley, that the Xibun River plantation is located. It is here that the cocoa used to make Xibun 64% Cuvée is produced.
