About Belú Cacao

Meet Emily

Belú Cacao is a team of award-winning chocolate artisans from El Salvador who have reintroduced the true flavor of single origin Salvadoran cacao in exquisite chocolate bars.

They accomplished this not only by assembling an all-female team dedicated to producing exceptional chocolate from an ancestral Mesoamerican crop, but also by working directly with cacao farmers who share their commitment to quality and sustainability.

Learn more about Emily and her eye-opening story of empowering women, and being empowered herself, on our blog. And, if you speak Spanish, enjoy this 2-minute video featuring Emily and Belú from a 2022 export bootcamp.

Why We Love Them


Belú trades directly with cacao farmers participating in Alianza Cacao's Blue Harvest Initiative for environmentally sustainable farm management and fair trade pricing. Their farming partners commit to caring for natural resources and water conservation to restore landscape and soil health for a positive environmental impact.


Belú is the first women-led bean-to-bar chocolate maker in El Salvador. Emily leads a small, all-women production team creating jobs that provide income to single mothers who live under very difficult circumstances. Read more on our blog.


Belú proudly makes chocolate that has been recognized internationally in awards competitions for five consecutive years, such as: AVPA (Gourmet Products in Paris), Academy of Chocolate (London), International Chocolate Awards (London) and Chocolate Alliance (Seattle).
