Our Story

Marco and Derek co-founded Kayu in 2019, with the dream of making Cacao fruit available to everyone. The name Kayu was created based on two words originating from Quechua, one of Ecuador's native languages; “kakaw” meaning cacao and “wayu” meaning fruit.

It was not our first attempt and many “appealing” names fell through, for example, Cacafruit, Kakaway, Wakayu! In the end, we settled for Kayu and through this we honour the origin of the cacao fruit and the importance it had in the pre-columbian cultures.
