Delivering quality to you begins with an extensive presence in origin countries. Every step of the journey, from sourcing the best beans to getting finished products on the shelf, is overseen by a team of experts, so you know you are receiving proven quality beans.
The Cargill crop research teams travel over half a million kilometers a year across cocoa-growing regions to make predictions on crop size
Employees working in our origin country buying stations in cocoa-producing countries work closely with farmer cooperatives and purchase beans directly from small local operators
Each bag of beans entering our buying stations is sampled and analyzed for moisture content, with a sample per truck further analyzed on physical quality parameters such as moisture, mould, slate, bean count, and FFA. In addition, per export lot we analyze fat content and pH balance
- Working closely with farmer organizations, improvements are being made in farming and post-harvest methods, which has a direct impact on the quality of beans produced
Making cocoa and chocolate
Beans are transported for processing to world-class factories situated in the ports of the cocoa producing countries, as well as in the main consuming markets. Every factory delivers its own range of products. We produce made-to-measure cocoa and chocolate products, as well as coatings and fillings to suit your product needs. Most facilities have in-house laboratory facilities to test quality during production and to develop the final product according to your exact criteria.
