Nina and Erika first met in 2011 while living a fast-paced, work-hard, play-hard expat lifestyle in Shanghai, where they both worked in fashion. They soon became best friends. Since then, they have traveled the world together on one epic adventure after the other.

After drinking and sharing ceremonial Cacao for a few years, they started to talk about taking the Cacao to the next level. And thus, Wild Cacao Collective was born.

Their mission has always been to bring this powerful superfood to Scandinavia and to help bring awareness about the Ceremonial Cacao benefits.

When cacao entered Nina's life she finally connected with her heart rather than listening to her overthinking monkey mind and she now lives in between the swedish forest running retreats and workshops and Lake Atitlan, Guatemala where our Cacao comes from where she is creating a community and retreat space where she one day hope to grow our own cacao trees.
