You’ve got mail.

After months of silence firming up operations and preparing further legalities both in Dubai and the Philippines, here we are with an avalanche of updates. We do apologize but rest assured that making our investment run smoothly has never made us rest on our laurels.

You’ll be getting a newsletter every Saturday for the next 4 weeks! Don’t forget to follow us in Instagram where we are @cacaodoctor for more immediate updates and we are truly aiming (God-willing) to continue the webinar we started a year back. There we’ll talk more about cacao-farming and the process until it reaches the yummy chocolates we love. Enjoy the read and mabuhay!
