We discovered Tamshiyacu, a friendly and magical town, only accessible by boat up the Amazon river from Iquitos. We immediately fell in love with Peruvian cacao and Tamshiyacu.
The cacao tree is a native tree from the Peruvian jungle, and can reach up to 20 meters and live 100 years. Our region counts 60% of the genetic diversity of cacao known in the world.
Our mission is to produce cacao of the highest quality while helping preserve native cacao that forms part of the genetic heritage of Peru.
The Peruvian Amazon’s finest cacao genotypes and terroir, our unique agro-forestry practices that help preserve fauna and flora, state-of-the-art expertise in modern traceability, world-class research in fermentation techniques, and the passion of the men and women who are part of the TAMSHI family, all contribute in bringing you Peru’s Finest Cacao.
TAMSHI was reborn in 2018 in the hands of new owners, who have courageously decided to save the Company and all its employees after the previous administration left the Company on the verge of bankruptcy. We are united by the common vision and passion for sustainable and high-quality cacao and chocolate products, and the desire to provide significant positive social impact within the communities in which we operate.
The change of ownership marks a new era in the history of the Company. The vision of the new owners is to develop a sustainable, profitable, socially and environmentally responsible Company.
