CRU VIRUNGA IMPACT TRACKER 2016
Delicious bar by delicious bar, the collective enjoyment of Cru Virunga in 2016 made a demonstrable positive impact the earth, farmers and the last 900 mountain gorillas in the world. One of the most biodiverse areas in the world, Virunga National Park is at risk of being plundered for its natural resources.
Cacao is an important sustainable alternative form of development that preserves and protects these resources and empowers its residents.
Over the last eight years, Original Beans has led the effort to develop a sustainable cacao sector in the Virunga region in the DR Congo. As a result, 15.000 farmers now produce organic certified cacao across the region, incomes have tripled and on-farm deforestation rates have decreased by up to 50%.
