Gerkens: Another Name For Quality Cocoa Powder
At Gerkens we offer you only the best quality cocoa powder on the market. Usually, the quality of the cocoa powder is determined by the quality of the beans.
And that’s what we believe!
We source the highest quality beans from different regions in Africa, where climate and soil conditions help to make the best cocoa powder possible.
Now, let’s find out some of the core characteristics that make our cocoa powder one of the finest.
An Extensive Collection of Various Cocoa Flavours
What makes us different is the wide variety of flavors we offer. From dark red to dark brown, we’ve got all the colors and textures ready at your disposal.

Cocoa is a rich source of magnesium, which helps keep your body heart-healthy, as well as provides you with energy during your workouts, helping you get through those long training sessions faster than ever before! It also contains antioxidants, which help protect against cell damage and keep you looking young!
We Prioritize Quality Over Everything
At Gerkens, We only use the best cocoa beans with traceable origins, which means that we know exactly where each bean has been grown and how it was grown. As a result, the cocoa powder we make retains the exceptional taste and quality with added richness.
Wide Range of Cocoa Recipes
We have different types of cocoa powders that are exceptionally versatile they can be used in a range of different recipes which include:
Delicious Ice Creams
Our cocoa has a rich flavor that will enhance your ice cream’s flavor profile and make it taste delicious! The higher quality of the cocoa, the better it will be for your ice cream recipe because it will have more flavor and sweetness to it than average-grade cacao products do (which tend to be dry and bland).
You can also use our black cocoa powder or Dutch processed cocoa powder for additional color and texture.
So, you can create delicious frozen desserts with a chocolate ice cream base that will blow everyone away at any party or celebration!
Our premium quality cocoa powder has been carefully crafted with fresh ingredients to create a delicious and rich chocolate spread that can be used on sandwiches, toast, ice cream, and more.

Desserts that Satisfies Your Soul
Gerkens cocoa works best in creamy chocolate desserts like pies, tarts, or brownies. It will add a rich, moist chocolaty flavor to your gourmet desserts and hot chocolate and provide you with the perfect dark brown texture you’ve been looking for.
The high-fat content of our natural cocoa powder makes it ideal for baking. The fat in our cocoa powder helps to create a rich and creamy texture in your confectionaries.
You are free to choose from both sweetened and sugar-free or unsweetened cocoa powder. As our cocoa powders are naturally preserved you can also create cocoa butter by heating it. You can also use baking soda or baking powder along with our cocoa powder, to give your food items the desired taste without causing any issues!
If you’re a pastry chef or just a regular chocolate enthusiast, trying out all the recipes using our cocoa powder would give you an unbelievable experience on the whole!
Cocoa Powder Sourced From Authentic Origins
Our cocoa powder is sourced from the best farms in Africa. Taste the delightful tropical flavors of the Ivory Coast and the rich texture of Ghana as our cocoa ship directly from these countries.
Our cocoa is grown in areas that are free of pesticides and other chemical treatments, which means that you don’t have to worry about the harmful effects of these chemicals on them.
We work closely with our farmers to ensure that they get the best prices for their products and are paid a fair price for their efforts.
Our cocoa is also grown by small farming communities that provide employment for many people in the region. It’s not uncommon for these farmers to grow up working on their family farms, so we feel it is important to support local agriculture wherever possible.
Feel Recharged with Premium Organic Cocoa
We have a special Premium Organic cocoa, for those who like to savor the rich, condensed flavor and pure essence of 100% natural cocoa. It’s exceptionally nutritious and healthful and has a higher level of antioxidants than regular ones. Organic cocoa contains more magnesium, potassium, zinc, and iron.
Our Premium Organic cocoa is grown under more favorable conditions than conventional cocoa. Organic cocoa comes from the same crop, but it is produced with more care and attention to detail. This means that it has a richer flavor and is less likely to have pesticides or other harmful chemicals in it.
It also has a richer flavor profile than conventional cocoa because it’s grown using higher quality ingredients and fewer pesticides. This allows you to enjoy your favorite chocolate treat without worrying about potential negative side effects on your health!
You’d feel more recharged with our Premium Organic blend. Organic cocoa is also a great source of magnesium, potassium, and calcium — three minerals that can help strengthen bones, boost energy and improve sleep quality.
Completely Secure Cocoa Sourcing
Our sourcing capabilities make us stand out from the average cocoa powder manufacturers. We maintain broad standards in terms of selecting our suppliers. Here are the things we evaluate before even selecting a supplier to source cocoa beans from:
- The suppliers have to be certified
- The suppliers will be from the exact locations we specify. With years of research, we managed to locate the places where the best beans grow. And if the applicant isn’t from those specially pre-selected regions, they won’t be granted the supplier status.
- For organic beans, we have multiple origins from where we supply our beans. This helps us maintain a stable flow of organic beans for processing.
