The Semai Origin has been awarded the AVPA Bronze Medal in 2023. The Agency for the Valorization of Agricultural Products, AVPA, is a non-governmental, non-profit organization, mainly composed of producers and taste enthusiasts. The association's goal is to enhance the value of agricultural products and to recognize the excellence of certain producers too often forgotten in the midst of mass marketing.
Semai (also means to sow) is the name of the indigenous people whom we work with closely to harvest this cacao through a CSR program that impacts more than 150 families. Located at the peak of the Malaysian main range in Pahang at an altitude of around 450m or 1500ft, cocoa here is grown in a mixed crop agro-forestry setting.
