Unicao

Unicao ingredients showcase African origin cocoa at its best.

The Unicao cocoa cakes, cocoa liquors and cocoa butters we produce in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana, represent the top origin products in the market today. Selecting the finest regional cocoa beans and using the latest processing technologies, we bring the famous flavors of West African cocoa to the world.

History of Unicao

PROCACI was established in Côte d’Ivoire in 1978 by IC State & SUCHARD. In 1987 the company was privatized and renamed Unicao. In 2009, a cocoa processing facility was built in Kumasi, Ghana to diversify and expand Unicao’s operations. The new facility allowed Unicao to offer cocoa products from a single-source origin as well as to process cocoa beans into cocoa liquor for use in a wide range of applications.

 

In 2015, the Unicao brand became part of our cocoa portfolio. Additional processing facilities in Abidjan and San Pedro, make Unicao our African origin cocoa brand of choice.
