cocoa ingredients
Mission, British Columbia

Emkao Foods Inc. (“Emkao”) is a startup food processing company, founded in 2016, focused on the production of organic and transparently sourced cocoa ingredients – cocoa butter, cocoa powder, cocoa Nibs, cocoa beans, husk, and Vegan dark chocolate chips. It is located in Mission, British Colombia.

Emkao specializes in the chocolate industry through a vertically integrated structure that leverages direct trade and single sourcing for their primary input product: cocoa beans. This structure is possible due to an ownership stake in a family farm (“Kotou Farm”) located in Cameroon, in western Africa. Emkao is able to directly import high quality, certified organic, cocoa beans from Kotou Farm with favorable payment terms. Once imported into Canada, Emkao is able to process these raw cocoa beans primarily into five marketable finished products. EMKAO can supply right now 200Mt/Year but can increase capabilities if demand is there. SQF and GMP pending.
