Nowadays, Colombia produces some of the best Rums and Chocolates in the world. They are produced in almost every corner of the country and are finally starting to get the reputation they have always deserved.
Additionally, most of the chocolate produced these days in Colombia comes from cacao plantations that have replaced the illegal coca plantations.
This change has been mainly achieved as a result of the peace agreement signed between Colombia and its biggest guerrilla group.
This agreement created the foundations to allow farmers of the areas most affected by the many years of conflict and violence, to voluntary replace their coca plantations for cocoa ones.
The Colombian government has been promoting this change and helping the farmers willing to do so.
Therefore, by buying and eating Colombian chocolates, you are indirectly helping the farmers who grew the cacao. In the long run, this will help keeping and maintaining peace in Colombia.
