Cocoa also known as cacao, refers to the dried and fully fermented fatty seed of the tropical tree – Theoboma Cacao. Cocoa is primarily produced across three regions – West Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America. Ivory Coast is the single largest producer of cocoa, accounting for more than 40% of the world’s total production. Other major producers of cocoa include Ghana, Indonesia, Nigeria and Ecuador. Europe, on the other hand, is the world’s largest importer and also the biggest processer of cocoa beans. Europe currently accounts for nearly 38% of the total global cocoa grinded. Worldwide cocoa represents an important crop: a cash crop for countries that produce it and an important import for countries that process and consume it. The global supply chain of cocoa involves its movement across countries and continents. The complex production process involves various parties including – cultivators, buyers, shipping companies, processing companies, chocolatiers and distributers.
A cocoa processing plant transforms cocoa beans into three main components: cocoa liquor, cocoa butter and cocoa powder which can be further used to make different products. The chocolate and confectionary industry currently represents the biggest consumer of the cocoa processing market. Apart from the chocolate and confectionary industry; cocoa butter and cocoa powder also have other applications. Cocoa butter is used in encapsulating various pharmaceutical drugs and also finds applications in cosmetic products such as moisturizing creams and soaps. Cocoa powder is often used as an ingredient in various food and beverages. For instance, it can be used in chocolate spreads, chocolate flavoured drinks, sauces, cakes, biscuits and chocolate flavoured desserts such as ice cream and mousse.
IMARC’s latest study “Cocoa Processing Plant Project Report: Industry Trends, Manufacturing Process, Machinery, Raw Materials, Cost and Revenue” provides a techno-commercial roadmap for setting up a cocoa processing plant. The study, which has been done by one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms, covers all the requisite aspects of the cocoa industry. This ranges from macro overview of the market to micro details of the industry performance, processing and processing requirements, project cost, project funding, project economics, expected returns on investment, profit margins, etc. This report is a must-read for entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, consultants, business strategists, and all those who are planning to foray into the cocoa industry in any manner.
