ZACHI was born in honor of Zamora-Chinchipe, the province in Ecuador´s Amazonian region where traces of cacao were found in ancient artifacts dating back to 5,500 B.C. This important discovery established Ecuador as the native birthplace of cacao.
ZACHI was established in 2020 by a native Ecuadorian, Melissa Olivares Breen, and her husband Ryan Breen. Both coming from different cultures but passionate for chocolate, they were influenced by the consumption of healthy, organic food that is produced with social and environmental responsibility. Together, they decided to create a chocolate brand where people can feel confident in consuming a premium organic dark chocolate with many nutrition benefits, instead of feeling guilty for eating a sugary, poor quality, mass produced chocolate product that contains very little real cacao.
With the conviction that best flavor comes from the best ingredients, ZACHI products are made with the finest organic Ecuadorian cacao, known as ¨Fine Aroma Cacao¨, in combination with exotic healthy ingredients that enlighten the body and mind.
Melissa is the founder of ZACHI and comes from the country that has been recognized for producing the best cacao in the world, Ecuador. She recalls growing up in Ecuador and the happy moments spent on her family’s farm when her grandparents cultivated and harvested cacao as the primary family business, a tradition that her family carries on to this day. Creating ZACHI has meant bringing the best from home and one of the reasons why she is proud of her country, Fine Aroma Ecuadorian Cacao.
