Shaping a joyful future together

The Koa way

In 2017, we had the sparkling idea of how to contribute to sustainable growth in rural Ghana. Koa was born from a sophisticated concept, innovative processes, and a great deal of passion.

At Koa, we spot the hidden potential to empower people. We discovered that the cocoa fruit has much to offer besides the beans. The fruit lets us increase farmers’ income, create new jobs in rural areas and is a resource for added value for the people and planet.

100% transparent
extra income

for small-scale farmers

Through training with Koa, cocoa farmers gain new knowledge and methods to process the previously discarded cocoa pulp. Thanks to the partnership with Koa, smallholder farmers earn an additional income which they receive on the same day as production. 100% of the payments are verified with blockchain.

Radical Transparency

economic growth


Most of our team are young workers from the surrounding communities who now have a new outlook on life. Additionally, our team consists of internationally experienced experts, making valuable contributions towards sustainable growth in their home country.

40% less
food waste


By processing the cocoa pulp, we make use of a natural resource, previously thrown away. Through solar power, we gently remove the surplus part of the fruit. The beans remain unharmed and proper fermentation of the beans for the chocolate production continues to be guaranteed.


Our mobile processing equipment only runs on solar energy. Learn more about our sustainable technology.

I’m 24 years young, coming from a small town close to where Koa is situated. Now imagine that young locals start building the first ever cocoa fruit juice factory – locally – and we can be part of that world innovation. Pretty amazing, right?

It was a wonderful surprise when the Koa team started setting up the factory in our community. The benefit for all of us quickly became apparent. Exciting to be part of this!

Thanks to regular workshops with Koa, I’ve been able to not only create a second source of income but also gain new knowledge for the cultivation of our cocoa plants.
