Our cacao beans are sourced from selected plantations, where we help our farmers to innovate methods with minimal environmental impact. Unlike other mass-produced rainforest crops like coffee, cacao cultivation doesn’t cause deforestation – because the cacao actually thrives in the natural shade of the trees. We only source from cacao from sustainable suppliers, committed to the biodiversity in the Amazon jungle.
Mature cacao pods hand-cut by machete, then immediately cut open, the seeds and pulp scooped out. The sweet mucilaginous pulp is left on the seeds during fermentation. Then the fresh raw cacao beans are put in crates and continually rotated using wooden paddles, for optimum aeration and temperature. After fermentation the beans dry naturally in the sun’s rays for a week.
Fully dry, the beans are stored and transported with their skin acting as a natural protective layer. On arrival at the collection centre the beans are carefully cleaned and any poor quality beans removed, before being passed over magnets to remove tiny impurities. They are roasted to develop a complex flavour profile and then carefully winnowed to separate the beans from the husks, finally they are roughly broken into small, crunchy cacao nibs.

About the brand
The journey of Naturya began when our founder, Martin Kemp, back in 2006, tasted his first goji berry.
Inspired to share the small but nourishing sun-dried fruit with others, Martin, using his savings, imported half a ton of goji berries all the way from the Himalayan mountains to the UK.
Since our humble beginning in a shed at the end of Martin’s garden, in 2009, Naturya has grown and flourished into a small but passionate community of people who all share a love for the planet and the wonderful nourishment that plants provide.
At Naturya, superfoods are at the heart of everything we do and create. Find out which nutrients your body needs for building muscle, boosting immunity or protecting against oxidative stress.
Our journey along untravelled roads in search of the healthiest foods on the planet has been inspiring and meaningful, a project of passion and integrity.
We never compromise on the quality of the food we bring to the table, on our care and respect for the earth, on the environment and all living beings. These are a core set of values that still drive the beating heart of Naturya today.
Our products are born from the wonder of nature, not the processes of a food laboratory.
All our superfoods are easy to consume and form part of a wider, virtuous circle that values simplicity as a pathway to health and longevity.
What we are offering, essentially, is an act of service to humans, animals and the planet. We fulfil this role professionally, with a strong sense of gratitude, and with the humility born of a reverence for that which is bigger than us.
More than ten years later, here we are, with a firm belief that we are on the right track: growing towards positive goals together enhances our humanity. It allows for the emergence of a deeper rooting of values. And just like our superfoods, only good things grow from deeply rooted values.
We are a small, friendly company made by a synergistic community of passionate innovators, researchers and technologists, and more importantly, we are people who care.
We invite you to join us into this wonderful adventure and world of superfoods.
At Naturya, we have a vision to create and run a business that works alongside nature and respects the life and nourishment it brings. To be sustainable means looking at our impact upon the world around us and taking action to care for the planet.
Sourcing the most powerful ingredients from all over the world, we work closely with our suppliers, building close, long-lasting relationships. That’s why we pay our organic growers fair, sustainable prices for the love and care they show our foods. We believe that being fair produces better food and a better world.
Inspired by the latest innovations for sustainable packaging, we are continually exploring recyclable packaging options for all our products.
It can be a challenge to find suitable packaging without compromising on the quality and shelf life of the food we provide, but we are committed to finding a solution in the near future.
Being sustainable also means taking local action too and looking after the communities we live in. That’s why we’re promoting in-house recycling schemes for both our office sites and reducing food waste by donating to local food bank initiatives.
Our care and respect for the Earth still drives our vision of being a company that does their part to nurture the planet and the life it brings.
