Specialty fats

We have developed a range of vegetable fats, cocoa butter equivalent fats, cocoa butter improver fats, cocoa butter substitutes, confectionery and custom fats. These collectively offer a range of options for customers to create tailored applications. We also work directly with customers to create individual recipe solutions.

Ingredients offering


Chocolate products are sensitive to temperature fluctuations and softening can lead to fat migration and fat bloom. In warmer climates this can be a serious problem. 

Our Cocoa Butter Improver (CBI) fats are designed to protect products by increasing hardness in warmer temperatures.


Designed to enhance the stability, shelf life and value of products, our Cocoa Butter Equivalent  (CBE) fats are manufactured to support the characteristics of milk and dark chocolates and to improve melting, stability and flavor characteristics.


We offer a range of vegetable fats developed for use in the confectionery and snack food industries. These versatile fats can all be produced from sustainably sourced components, offer superior end product texture properties and are excellent options in a range of applications.

Our progress towards tackling deforestation in cocoa

Forests are vital to sustainable cocoa production. Not only do they help to improve biodiversity and mitigate against climate change, they also help to improve cocoa yields and raise farmer incomes.
