This Organic Sulawesi is sourced from the Rantekarua Estate located in the Bittuang district of Tana Toraja Regency, South Sulawesi province on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia. The Regency is named for the Toraja people, an indigenous group with a traditional village lifestyle that includes houses resembling boats and animist rituals called aluk to dolo (the way of the ancestors). The Rantekarua Estate is owned and operated by the Sulotco Jaya Abadi, which has a major processing facility in the Bolokan valley. The road from the estate to the processing facility is extremely rough and rocky with the nearest major city (Rantepao) about 4 hours away along unpaved roads. Sulotco Jaya Abadi maintains the road for local travel and has invested in school construction for the communities around the estate.
