A Mayan cacao farmer, tending to his tree in a rainforest in southern Belize. The tree, planted five years ago, produced it's first saleable caco in 2007. Southern Belize is the heartland of traditional Mayan cacao production. Local farmers sell their organic, rainforest-grown cacao at premium prices to Cadburys. Cacao is one of the few cash crops in the poor region. Belize cacao becomes the main ingredient in Cadbury's premium chocolate bar, Mayan Gold.
