Portfolio of cocoa brands
Our portfolio of respected brands is spearheaded by the iconic deZaan, with its heritage of more than 100 years of excellence, as well as African origin brand Unicao, South American origin brand Joanes, the well-established Macao cocoa powders and Britannia specialty fats brands, and the recently launched Huysman cocoa powder brand.
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.
Due to the high value of this book, digital versions are not currently available for download. If you would like to request a hard copy of the new edition, please contact your Olam Cocoa Account Manager.
deZaan Flavour Friends
The cocoa experts in our 6 Cocoa Innovation Centres worldwide have created the new deZaan Flavour Friends tool. Created in collaboration with master chef Angelique Schmeinck, Flavour Friends allows you to explore how various flavours and ingredients work in combination in cocoa applications.

Research and trading
Since 1992, when Olam first began exporting cocoa beans from Nigeria, the company has invested in fundamental research teams in key origins to assess production. These activities are further supported by meteorologists analysing weather patterns and impact.
As one of the leading traders of cocoa products – cocoa powder, cocoa mass (aka cocoa liquor) and cocoa butter – our team continuously monitors the global market, short- and long-term trends, and futures positions. Additional cocoa market intelligence is gleaned from a multitude of sources to help customers make informed procurement decisions that are backed by world-class trading and risk management guidance.
