Yaku Latin Goods is a Brisbane-based social enterprise that supports health and education projects from a global community perspective. It was founded in January 2016 by Gabriela and Santiago, an Ecuadorian couple who combine their professional skills in marketing, business and project management, with their awareness and willingness to create a positive impact in socially disadvantaged communities.
We import organic dark chocolate from Ecuador, which is produced with the highest quality of cacao ‘Arriba Nacional’ through biodynamic farming. This organic chocolate is direct trade, vegan, gluten free and soy free, and is a proud winner of the International Chocolate Awards for 6 years in a row.
Yaku Latin Goods trades at organic markets in Brisbane, festivals and online. Our clients not only value the high quality and health benefits of this product, but also resonate and get inspired with our passion to supporting community projects.
Finally, a percentage of these profits goes out to support two community projects: one in Peru regarding children with chronic malnutrition, and one in Myanmar, regarding young orphans from war. So far, Yaku Latin Goods has contributed to improve the lives of 500 children.
