Direct supply of cocoa products from Côte d'Ivoire
Optimal pricing without intermediaries and brokers commissions
Efficient logistics of product deliveries in compliance with time requirements
Cote d'Ivoire is the world's leading supplier of cocoa beans
The company's factory is located in the center of the world cocoa industry. 40% of the world's cocoa crop is grown in Côte d'Ivoire. This allows us to produce the volumes we need. The country's harvest and processing volumes increase every year.
DIAKITE production – full processing of cocoa beans
The factory is furnished with industrial equipment, which allows to execute a high-quality processing of the raw materials to obtain finished products.
The technology of the raw material preparation meets the conditions of world standards
We consistently and gently perform the following cocoa bean preparation steps:
Raw material cleaning
The pre-cleaning removes the residual fibers or the sand in the product.
The cocoa beans are heat-treated to enhance the natural chocolate flavor of the product. During the process, the cocoa bean loses moisture, its shell separates and the kernels themselves become darker.
The sterilization technology consists of injecting water vapor into the cocoa bean roasting drum. This guarantees the destruction of pathogens, bacteria and spores.
After the roasting is complete, the mechanical crushing begins, which consists of splitting the beans and simultaneously removing the woody shells and sprouts. This crushing transforms the cocoa into small grains with a size of 2 to 3 millimeters which are called nibs.
Nibs are ground to make «cocoa paste», sometimes also called «cocoa liquor». This paste, which is the grinding result, contains about 52% fat.
