The CEPROAA COOPERATIVE is a non-profit organization that brings together 393 members of the Amazonas region, who carry out agricultural activities, who have joined together voluntarily through a jointly owned and democratically controlled company that complies with cooperative principles.
Its operation is based fundamentally on the cooperation of all its members and the management capacity of its leaders and workers to generate one or more services under the best conditions.

UTKKU, comes from the Quechua language meaning "cotton", which represents purity, justice, love, care and abundance, where it is associated with the characteristics of our producers, who are united, simple, respectful and nature lovers, who cultivate cocoa with environmental responsibility, always having in mind to pass on the good for future generations. UTKKU also refers to the province of Utcubamba (which means cotton field), where the Cooperative is located.

Through the dense cloud forests and rugged Andes mountains, this very fragrant Utkku cocoa rises and blasts with its aromas and flavours, realizing that the flavour expressions of cocoa may have been underestimated; the unique ylang ylang perfume strongly dominates at the start and gets blended with fruity body of ripe kumquat and refreshing paradise apple. The exceptional native genetics add to the distinct character of this cocoa for a memorable flavour journey.
