The ports in Ivory Coast, the primary cocoa-producing region in the world, noticed around 33% decline in the available supplies in the month of November. Meanwhile, growth for cocoa butter has been on the rise from the beauty, flavor, aroma, and cosmetic industries.

Ghana’s cocoa production, too, fell to a 13-year record low. Both these regions of Ghana and Ivory Coast constitute around 70% of global cocoa supplies. Hence, owing to limited supplies and rising demands, cocoa butter prices surged throughout the discussed time period.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, given the current supply and demand attributes, the Cocoa Butter price trends are likely to surge even further in the coming months.

Cocoa Butter Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Cocoa Butter is extracted from the cocoa seeds after removing its cover. Cocoa Butter is rich in chocolate flavor and aroma and is essentially used in chocolate production along with chocolate-based cosmetic products. So, the chocolate/cocoa price trend are direct reflectors of the Cocoa Butter price trend as well.

During the discussed time period of H1’23, Cocoa Butter prices remained on an inclining trajectory. The increased price trend were a direct result of a mismatch between the market dynamics and pricing fundamentals. The recession mounted in Europe after Russia’s armed invasion of Ukraine, which caused the European suppliers to become hesitant and ordered less, limiting the supplies. Further, high fertilizer costs and the drought-like situation in Africa suppressed crop yields, directly impacting the price trend for Cocoa Butter.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, given the El Nino phenomenon, reduced rainfall is expected to lower the Cocoa productivity further; thus, the Cocoa Butter prices are expected to rise in the upcoming months as well.

Cocoa Butter, also called theobroma oil, is basically a pale-yellow, edible fat that is derived or obtained from the cocoa bean. The beans are roasted and finely ground into chocolate liquor that is pressed to extract the butter. Its separation from the fibrous powder present in chocolate liquor allows both the products to recombine at varying levels to prepare chocolate. It is known for its cocoa flavour and aroma and is an essential ingredient in chocolate as well as beauty and cosmetic applications.

Production Process

  • Production of Cocoa Butter via Grinding and Pressing Method

In this process, cocoa beans are first fermented, cleansed, dried, and separated from their outer shells. The obtained cocoa nibs are then roasted and ground to a very fine, liquid mass, thus producing chocolate liquor. Finally, the obtained chocolate liquor is pressed to extract Cocoa Butter, thus, separating it from fibrous powder.
