Organic Cocoa Products
Tradin Organic, a division of SunOpta, sources and supplies organic cocoa products from multiple origins and processing facilities in Europe, South America, North America and Africa. In addition to organic, we carry certifications such as Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance. We offer full container load and inventory programs.
Organic Cocoa Powder (Natural)
Our natural cocoa powder is made from the pressing of cocoa beans without adding an extracting agent. This results in a solid cake which we sift to a fine powder. This cocoa powder retains a lot of natural acids and usually tends to be lighter in color with a stronger flavor than alkalized cocoa powder. We can offer this cocoa powder in various percentages of alkalization (Natural 10-12% and 12%), multiple Origins, Fair-Trade and Rainforest Alliance Certified.
Organic Cocoa Powder (Alkalized)
Our alkalized cocoa powder (or Dutch cocoa) is treated by an alkaline solution to give the beans a darker color and milder flavor without using preservatives. We can offer this cocoa powder in various percentages of alkalization (Alkalized 10-12%, 12%, 20-22% and 22%), multiple Origins, Fair-Trade and Rainforest Alliance Certified.
Organic Cocoa Beans
Our cocoa beans are sourced from all over the world with each origin offering a unique flavor profile. The cocoa bean is the seed from the fruit of the cocoa tree and once harvested, it is fermented and dried. By offering the whole cocoa beans, we allow our customers the most creativity in their processing to create their own unique taste. We can offer cocoa beans from multiple origins and Fair-Trade and Rainforest Alliance Certified.
Organic Cocoa Liquor/ Mass
Our cocoa liquor can be offered in chunks or flakes and is produced when the beans are ground into a paste to separate the liquor from the butter. Once the cocoa liquor cools, it solidifies into a block and is broken into flakes or chunks for easy processing. We can offer our cocoa liquor from three main origins: Peru, Netherlands and the Dominican Republic. We can also offer Fair-Trade and Rainforest Alliance Certified.
Organic Chocolate Drops
Our chocolate drops are offered in both milk and white drops. They are indulgent and rich in flavor. We can offer a variety of origins and sourcing from multiple processing facilities worldwide as well as Fair-Trade and Rainforest Alliance Certified.
Organic Chocolate Chunks
Our chocolate chunks are similar to the drops in that we can offer a variety of origins and sourcing from multiple processing facilities worldwide as well as Fair-Trade and Rainforest Alliance Certified. The chunks can also be offered in a range of cocoa percentages and are a larger chunk format than the drops.
Organic Cocoa Butter
Our cocoa butter is extracted through the milling of the cocoa bean when processing to separate the butter from the liquor. The cocoa butter is the fatty lipid locked within the cocoa bean and separated through milling and cooled into chunks. We can offer deodorized cocoa butter, deodorized chunks, natural and natural chunks as well as Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance Certified.
