Mt. Talinis Dark Chocolate was conceptualized in 2018 by the multi-awarded Negros Oriental Chamber of Commerce & Industry (NOCCI) as a community-based inclusive social enterprise comosed of marginal cacao farmer in the remote mountain barangays of the Municipality of Valencia, Province of Negros Oriental, promoted through the One-Town-One-Product (OTOP) program of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in partnership with the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Valencia, Energy Development Corporation (EDC), various national government agencies, and Philippine Cacao Development Board, Inc. (PCDBI) President and the King of Philippine Dark Chocolate, Mr. Valente Turtur of Ayungon, Negros Oriental.

The said initiative was prompted by the existence of more than 22,515 cacao trees grown at the foot of Mount Talinis RainForest, considered by DENR as the “last frontier” of Negros Island. To protect the rainforest from destructive “slash-and-burn” (Kaingin) farming practices, EDC launched its BINHI Greening progamm; accordingly, the propagation of Mount Talinis cacao seedlings and drying of cocoa beans are subjected to EDC’s pioneering Vegetative Material Recovery (VMR) technology and innovative geothermic drying facility to speed up the research and development of export quality singl-origin cacao beans and sustain the preservation and progation of the most premium threatended Philippine tree species and the very rare CRIOLLO cacao trees found in Mount Talinis RainForest.

By choosing Mt. Talinis Dark Chocolate, 5 % of our annual net profits will be donated to cacao farmers who support our mission to Save Mount Tailinis RainForest.
