Guaranteeing goodness means everything to us
Goodness is at the heart of everything we do. But we believe it goes way beyond just taste, it is also our commitment to people and the planet. So, we go the extra mile to understand, perfect and reinvent cocoa powders that are consistently good for your business, but we also share goodness with the world, supporting a sustainable cocoa future for generations to come.
We understand your needs and your consumers’ demands are broad and constantly evolving. That is why it is our mission to get to the bottom of what goodness means to you, to produce and suggest precisely the right cocoa powder for your consumer-wowing treats.
We know that consistency is key to your products delivering your recognizable, delicious signature taste. Our clever Cocoa Engineers are experts at perfecting each process to bring consistent quality, colour and taste every single time.
We’re always looking for new ideas to create goodness. We take consumer insights, growing trends and market demands and mix it up with a huge portion of inspiration to invent new mouthwatering goodness people will love.
We believe that everyone in the cocoa supply chain should have their fair share of goodness. That is why Gerkens® is committed to the Cargill Cocoa Promise, aiming to improve the lives of cocoa farmers and their communities, while securing a thriving cocoa sector for generations to come.
