Getting closer to cocoa

Kerry knows cocoa, and that's because we extract our own using farming partners that have been supplying us for generations.

We source different varieties of cocoa, namely Crillo, Forastero and Trinitario, and we have strong relationships with suppliers from Ghana, Cameroon, Brazil and the Ivory Coast. These links ensure that we can gather the best quality cocoa with all kinds of characteristics.

We take enormous pride in being a world leader in cocoa extracts. Through sharing our expertise, product knowledge and technologies, we have become an exceptional commercial partner.  

Our cocoa portfolio includes:

  • extracts
  • distillates

Delicate flavour, sustainably sourced

Few crops require as much care and patience as vanilla – both in cultivation and harvest.

We stay true to this, ensuring our vanilla is carefully sourced and handled, using all-natural extraction processes to retail the delicate, light, sweet and natural taste of vanilla that consumers love every day.

We pride ourselves in working alongside nature to create a truly sustainable harvesting process, with an unyielding devotion to treating our vanilla farmers with fairness and respect. Our sustainability programme in Madagascar is making a real difference through agricultural best practice advice, empowering local women, crop security measures and ensuring education for farming community children.

Our historical know-how in vanilla extraction is brought to life by a dedicated team of specialists in Grasse, France, at the heart of the flavour and fragrance industry. They refine and perfect our vanilla portfolio using advanced analytical capabilities, delivering the broadest and deepest range of extracts for customers around the world. 

Our vanilla portfolio includes:

  • extracts
  • infusions

Our traceable vanilla comes with Fairtrade and organic certification and all-natural labeling.
