SEMI-FINISHED PRODUCTS

Koumbi Cocoa aims to deliver high quality, semi-finished products approved by the Food Standards Authorities in all the regions in which we operate and export our products to.

Cocoa Liquor

Chocolate liquor (cocoa liquor) is pure cocoa mass in solid or semi-solid form. Like the cocoa beans (nibs) from which it is produced, it contains both cocoa solids and cocoa butter in roughly equal proportion. It is produced from cocoa beans that are fermented, dried, roasted and separated from the skins. Its main use is in making chocolate.

Cocoa Butter

(alkalized and non-alkalized).

Cocoa butter, also called the obroma oil, is a pale-yellow, edible vegetable fat extracted from the cocoa bean. Cocoa butter has a cocoa flavor and aroma. Its melting point is just below human body temperature. It is used to make chocolate, as well as some ointments, toiletries, and pharmaceuticals.

Cocoa POWDER

(alkalized and non-alkalized).

Cocoa powder is an unsweetened powder produced by grinding the seeds of the fruit of a tropical evergreen tree called the cacao, or cocoa tree. These seeds, or beans, are first fermented, then dried and roasted. After roasting, the beans have their hulls removed and are then processed to extract their fat, which is known as cocoa butter. The leftover solids are further ground into what eventually is sold as cocoa powder. Cocoa Powder is used in everything from baked goods to savory dishes to cosmetics. Cocoa powder is a key ingredient in things like chocolate cake, chocolate frosting, and other chocolate-based goodies and drinks.

Global Demand

Global demand for Cocoa is estimated to rise by 30% by the year 2020, with a particularly high demand emanating from China.

GHANA AS A COCOA PRODUCER

75% of the world’s cocoa beans come from four West African countries: Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon.

Two African nations, Ivory Coast and Ghana, produce more than half of the world’s cocoa, with 1.448 and 0.835 million tonnes, respectively (31.6% and 25%).
