Our association welcomes tourists to “experience the countryside”, cocoa plantation tours, tastings and cocoa-related sales of sensations that true chocolate offers. Our goal is to realize a dream to make Taboquinhas a place that can generate employment and income, but always keeping the focus on the preservation of natural resources and sustainable development.
Canudos de Taboquinha – Organical straws
The taboquinha straw is also one of the animations created by the association. Taboquinha is a species of grass very common in the region. The straw is an ideal way to give this plant a destination, giving employment opportunities and make an ecological and environmental action, combating the use of a plastic straw. The straws are cut manually, after cleaning they are processed further to remove the residues, dried in the oven and stored in the shade.
Our association is an initiative of the Itacaré municipality, with the support of the State Government, through the Regional Development and Action Institute (CAR), linked to the Rural Development Secretariat (SDR), and the Tourism Secretariat (Setur).
Founded on January 24, 2018, located at Rua Nova, s / n, São Borges District, Taboquinhas district.
