Olam Cocoa is a fully integrated cocoa business. We are both one of the largest and leading originators of cocoa beans in the world and one of the world’s leading processors of cocoa products: butter, powder and liquor.
Our 12 processing facilities (plus powder milling, blending and refining) with advanced manufacturing technology are strategically based either in the main producing countries to optimise transportation and environmental efficiencies (Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, Ghana and Brazil) or close to consumption markets. The USA and European markets are served by processing facilities in Canada, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The increasing demand for cocoa flavoured products in Asia is served by Singapore.
Our 6 innovation centres, with 40 R&D professionals in Brazil, USA, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain and the United Kingdom, develop tailor-made solutions for confectionery, bakery, beverage and dessert applications supported by comprehensive quality testing and precision processing.
