Create with us and grow your business

We love bringing new concepts and fresh ideas to life. Explore our portfolio where we can offer ingredients that are good for consumers and good for farmers. From exciting snacks to dairy alternative drinks, we bring expertise across cocoa, coffee, dairy, nuts and spices. 



Plant-based beverages can have it all – indulgence, sustainability credentials and wholesome ingredients. Think of the smooth, creamy textures our nuts can bring to coffees. When it comes to indulgence and a sense of well-being, cocoa and spice ingredients can deliver. Unlock plant-based formulations that consumers will love.



Stay at the forefront of dessert innovation with our expertly combined ingredients, perfect for the most luxurious experiences or healthier, high protein and low sugar treats. Indulgent texture can be a challenge, but nut pastes are here to save the day.  From replacing traditional gums, to creating velvety plant-based spreads and fillings, our pastes can bring the great taste and the nutritious benefits consumers crave.

Ice cream

Ice cream

With no room for compromise, plant-based ice creams need extra attention. Luckily, we have just the right nut pastes and know-how for a dreamy texture. Adding the perfect amount of air, we can blend nuts, cocoa and spices into delicious scoops. For that extra kick, why not add a ribbon of chili to mango ice cream?



Sweet or savory, crispy or melty – or possibly both? The possibilities are endless. Imagine almond slices in rice crackers, gaining flavor and crunchy texture from the goodness of nuts. Or how about combining cashews, almonds, pistachios and macadamias for a nutritious snack bar? Cashew and almond protein powders can create high-protein, gluten-free extruded snacks with sweet or savory fillings.


Chocolate and confectionery

Luxurious chocolate and confectionery that melts in your mouth can be plant-based too. Our versatile nut powders paired with cocoa butter can create creamy treats without the dairy. How about walnut for a delicious crunch, or almond for a comforting classic taste? Add our rich cocoa powders to the mix and there’s no end to the delicious chocolatey possibilities.

Ingredients in focus

It can be hard to make vegan products with standout sensory appeal. Lots of plant-based proteins leave a beany flavor and chalky texture. But our co-creation and innovation expertise helps you differentiate your plant-based offering across categories. From supporting clean label positioning to elevating flavor, learn how ofi and our cocoa, coffee, nuts and spice ingredients can make your next plant-based innovation idea a reality.

Coffee beverages

To bring the art of coffee into homes, we created a foamy 3-in-1 premix using our soluble coffee, cashew and almond protein powder, plus vegan creamer. Another option is combining coffee extract and nut pastes to make macchiatos, cappuccinos and mochas on the go.

Cashew coffee frappe premix

Cashew coffee has been a game changer for milkshakes, frappes and smoothies that can offer protein and fiber.  Combine cashew flour with fruits, vegetables or flavored sauces like chocolate to create creamy, nutty and satisfying drinks.

Golden milk

Golden milk has long been used in India as a comforting home remedy. It’s traditionally made with turmeric and other spices, such as cinnamon and ginger, or used to create lattes. Consider a dairy-free twist with our indulgent almond and cashew beverages. 

Plant-based chocolate drinks

With our almond, cashew & hazelnut blend, chocolate beverages can be a treat that are both nutritious and delicious. Unlock the possibilities of an indulgent and plant-based chocolate drink that can taste just as sweet as dairy, but with less sugar.

Choco-nut spreads

Did you know that nut protein powders can be used as a replacement for skimmed milk powders in chocolate spreads? Mix our nut pastes and protein powders with cocoa powder for an indulgent plant-based spread in cashew, almond and hazelnut flavors.


Our approach to sustainability is guided by our Purpose ‘To be the​ change for good food and a healthy future’. It is rooted in our belief that healthy, natural food is possible when people working in the food systems prosper and contribute to the restoration of the living world.

Press Release Apr 30, 2024
ofi cocoa shares how transparency and traceability are driving sustainability impact for food & beverage sector 

ofi (olam food ingredients), a global leader in naturally good food and beverage ingredients, says developments in data and technology – from granular deforestation mapping and child labor monitoring to AI-powered carbon measurement tools – are accelerating progress towards its Cocoa Compass sustainability ambition. It is also providing food and beverage companies with enhanced traceability and transparency ahead of new regulations in Europe and beyond.


The latest Cocoa Compass highlights based on 2022 data include:

  • New analysis showing over 30,168 farmers in ofi’s cocoa supply chain are earning a living income[1], putting the business on track to reach its 2030 target of 150,000 cocoa farmers earning a living income.
  • A 395% increase in the number of children receiving education support in 2022, compared to the 2018 baseline.
  • A 15% increase in the number of households covered by ofi’s Child Labor Monitoring and Remediation System (CLMRS).
  • 6 million trees distributed by ofi, working with its customers and partners, for agroforestry and income diversification, from 2018 to 2022.
  • 79% of farms in ofi’s sustainability programs have been polygon mapped[2]


United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Indonesia Mission Director, Jeff Cohen, said: "We are proud to be working together with ofi and the Hershey Company to encourage cocoa farmers to adopt more sustainable agriculture practices—like diversifying their crops and allowing more trees to remain on their land—which will strengthen their resilience against climate shocks and improve their livelihoods[3].”

Assessing Natural Capital costs in coffee operations

How do you differentiate between the environmental impacts of organizations across different geographies, local conditions, products, local regulations etc.?

For several years, ofi has been working towards assessing the true value (cost or benefits) of some of our operations on the ground. Our latest case study on Natural Capital Valuation: Assessing Natural Capital costs in coffee operations, delves into year-on-year monetary impact of our select coffee growing operations in five origins.


Globally, an estimated 12.5 million to 25 million smallholder farmers depend on the coffee industry for their livelihoods, according to figures from Fairtrade1 and the FAO2. However, the majority of these farmers face significant challenges including limited access to formal agronomy training, inadequate resources, small farm sizes and insecure land tenure. These factors often hinder the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices, which are crucial for preserving Natural Capital over the medium and long term. As a result, coffee production often imposes a cost on nature in the form of GHG emissions, degradation of soil structure and fertility, depletion of ground and surface water, and loss of natural ecosystem services critical to agricultural production.


To address these challenges, we employ Natural Capital valuation techniques, which leverage environmental economics to assign a monetary value (US$) to our impacts and dependencies, encompassing carbon emissions, water usage and ecosystem services. Quantifying Natural Capital in this way enables us to assess and mitigate risks while fostering investments that promote a positive impact on landscapes and ecosystem.


We evaluated twenty AtSource+ coffee farmer groups sourced from five different origins3 to assess their GHG emissions and water use related Natural Capital Costs (NCC). Reporting on the NCC is based on each metric tonne of product which makes the cost intensities very sensitive/ dependent on farm level yields. Thus, understanding the underlying yield dynamics is also crucial for interpreting these NCC footprints effectively.

Helping farming communities meet their own health and nutrition needs

The combined expertise of our local sustainability teams with partners such as Funcafé, TechnoServe, Côte d’Ivoire's National Nutrition program, USAID (United States Agency for International Development), and Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) delivers solutions to improve access to clean water, healthcare services and supplies, and nutritious food.


Initiatives range from using geo-location to identify and screen for infant malnutrition in farming communities in Côte d'Ivoire - where one in five children experience stunted growth and development - to fortifying key staples with vitamins and minerals in our processing facilities.
