Chocolate factory Hoja Verde
Chocolate factory on the equator
Since November 2014 Hoja Verde has its own chocolate factory in production. The factory is located in Cayambe in Ecuador. It is special that the equator runs through this factory. This means that one half of the factory is located in the northern hemisphere and the other half in the southern hemisphere. Near the factory, a monument alerts passers that they cross the equator.
