Cocoa: Beloved Across the World

The Aztecs and Mayans used cacao beans as currency in ancient South America. Today the cocoa industry has flourished into a multi-billion-dollar market. No matter the century, cocoa is a crowd-pleaser, from dark chocolate concentrate confections to melt-in-your-mouth baked goods with decadent fudgy or even floral flavors. We have cocoa extracts and chocolate flavorings to inspire even more indulgence.

Custom Flavor from Cake Mixes to Mousses

Our flavorists work side-by-side with you to craft the desired taste—even if you’re not sure what that is yet. We work around application challenges daily, like cocoa-flavored baked goods that must withstand high heat and remain deliciously chocolatey, all while using the least amount of raw material.

A well-rounded back-to-basics chocolate can’t go wrong. But exploring the unusual and delightful captures consumers’ desires for the new and evolving. Flavor profile building is a favorite pastime for our expert flavorists, whether it is creating characterizing tastes or developing the perfect notes.
