GRANJA LUKER: Looking for the best chocolate through research, hard work, and passion

CasaLuker is a family owned enterprise founded in 1906, in the small Colombian city of Manizales. CasaLuker’s commitment is to offer its customers the best chocolate made with top quality Fino de Aroma cocoa. To do so, over 50 years ago, in 1962, CasaLuker founded Granja Luker which is today one of the few cocoa research centres in the world. The staff at the centre work to modernize production technology and conservation techniques for Cacao Fino de Aroma in order to ensure that the farmers who rely on the crop for their livelihood receive their due benefit and to guarantee the best quality for CasaLuker’s end consumers.

Today, all this research, experience, passion and technology is aimed at building a sustainable cocoa business, whereby everyone in the productive chain receives a fair revenue and the end consumer can enjoy the best quality chocolate, with unique flavours and aromas. To achieve this goal, Granja Luker works on a number of projects including adaptive research, countrywide farmer training in cocoa harvest and production techniques, and the production of cocoa material that is later used by these farmers.

All these projects are grouped into a program called “The Luker Way”, which is committed to the social development of the cocoa sector in Colombia.

Here, we want to share this experience with all those who have been involved with this delicious product made with the best Cacao Fino de Aroma.
