DELIVERING HIGH QUALITY PAPUA NEW GUINEAN COCOA AND SPICES TO GLOBAL SPECIALTY MARKETS

 

ABOUT

Elliven is a boutique, Papua New Guinean trading firm focussed on responsibly sourcing and delivering high quality cocoa and spices to global specialty markets. Elliven is committed to working with farmers to showcase Papua New Guinea’s finest cocoa and spices.

Founded in 2016, Elliven is a Papua New Guinean owned company. Elliven’s founder Ron Neville, a third generation Papua New Guinean born in Goroka and raised in Mendi and Alotau, was drawn back home after years travelling the globe chasing cocoa.

 

Ron’s 10 years with a top tier international commodity trading and processing house has provided him with an unrivalled understanding of the global cocoa industry.

 

His passion for Papua New Guinea, strong connection to the people and international experience allows Elliven to deliver high quality Papua New Guinean cocoa and spices to traders and manufacturers in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

 

COCOA

Cocoa was introduced to Papua New Guinea in the 1900s and has since become a key agricultural export. The unique structure of Papua New Guinea’s cocoa industry enables Elliven to source sustainably managed and traceable cocoa from thousands of small-holding cocoa farmers. With 90 per cent of Elliven’s cocoa coming from these small village-based farmers, there are countless unique and remarkable stories to be discovered.

VANILLA

Papua New Guinea has become one of the largest producers of vanilla in the world. Started in the 1960s and expanded in the early 1990s, vanilla is now grown and cured by small-hold farmers all around Papua New Guinea’s beautiful coast. Papua New Guinea’s shores are blessed with both Planiforia and Tahitian vanilla varieties, for those looking for the perfect vanilla flavour.
