deZaan Cocoa Manual

The latest edition of the famous deZaan Cocoa Manual is now available. This is one of the most respected and coveted cocoa reference resources in the industry. Starting from the first manual edition published in 1969, the manual’s content has been unmatched in depth and scope of information on cocoa origination and processing. To help customers keep abreast of global trends, the new 2017 version also includes a chapter dedicated to the health aspects of cocoa.
