Emkao Foods Inc. (“Emkao”) is a startup food processing company, founded in 2016, focused on the production of single-source chocolate, cocoa butter, cocoa powder and related products. It is located in Mission, British Columbia. Emkao specializes in the chocolate industry through a vertically integrated corporate structure that leverages direct trade and single sourcing for their primary input product: cocoa beans. This structure is possible due to an ownership stake in a family farm (“Kotou Farm”) located in Cameroon, in western Africa. Emkao is able to directly import high quality, certified organic, cocoa beans from Kotou Farm with favorable payment terms. Once imported into Canada, Emkao is able to process these raw cocoa beans primarily into six marketable finished products. The current focus is to sell these products wholesale to other businesses such as chocolatiers, bakers, candy producers and related businesses.
