A leading originator of cocoa beans, a globally leading cocoa processor, and the world’s foremost focused supplier of cocoa beans and cocoa products (cocoa powder, cocoa butter and cocoa mass), Olam Cocoa is a fully integrated cocoa business.

Cocoa beans are sourced from all major origins across Africa, Asia and South America, and Olam Cocoa’s portfolio of respected brands is spearheaded by 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 confectionery and speciality fats brands, and the recently launched Huysman cocoa powder brand. Olam Cocoa has processing, refining and milling presence in the main cocoa producing countries, as well as in, or adjacent to, primary consumption markets in Europe, the Americas, and Asia.

Alongside a substantial operational infrastructure, Olam Cocoa recognises the clear responsibility to operate sustainably, Grow Responsibly and drive change by Re-imagining Agriculture. As one of the world’s leading suppliers of sustainable cocoa, Olam Cocoa is accelerating progress towards the goal of 100% traceable and sustainable cocoa volumes from its direct supply chain by 2020.

The deZaan product range is organised around the three key elements of consistency, quality and functionality (flavour, colour and performance in application) and the three ingredient categories of cocoa powders, cocoa masses and cocoa butters. These are available in a wide range of technically specific formulations that cover the entire spectrum of application possibilities, from dairy and bakery to beverages, ice cream, cereals and high-end chocolates. D11BK is the ideal black cocoa powder for perfectly balanced recipes. This is the first ever nib alkalised black cocoa powder that provides superior sensory properties and colour impact without any added sodium. D11BK offers the option for a substantial sodium reduction in recipes and the ability to produce health conscious products that support permissible indulgence trends in categories ranging from biscuits and muffins, to cereals, desserts and ice creams.

Formulation solutions for plant based chocolate milks

15 Aug 2018 --- Wouter Stomph, from Olam Cocoa, spoke with FoodIngredientsFirst about its latest cocoa concepts and formulation solutions for plant-based alternatives within chocolate milk. The demand for plant-based proteins is being pushed up as more people look for a high protein diet and move away from animal-based proteins. The challenge comes with flavors and the technical aspects of the proteins. At IFT, Olam presented a pea-protein based chocolate beverage with pumpkin seed protein as well. Innovators used a dark red cocoa powder that Stomph describes as “really vibrant” and able to round off very well some of the bitter and off flavors linked to the pea protein.
