Together with experts from Swiss and Ghanaian universities, we developed a process which integrates modern technology into a traditional environment.
As our processing site is mobile, we’re able to extract the cocoa fruit juice in the center of the communities, next to the cocoa farms. That’s why we call it a Community Mobile Processing Unit. In short, the CMPU is the core of the innovative process.
Through renewable energy, we can process cocoa fruits even in remote areas. Solar power also enables us to immediately cool the fresh juice to guarantee best quality. This is the first step of our production chain, in the heart of the tropical rainforest.
The Community Mobile Processing Unit (CMPU) allows us to press the cocoa fruit juice next to the plantation.
The entire extraction process is powered by solar energy –
for a greener future.
All stages of the process are digitally monitored, from the first harvest and mobile processing, with the transport, and all the way to the packaged product. We can access the information at any time and from anywhere.
Food quality within a
decentralised value chain
After extraction, the fresh cocoa fruit juice is immediately brought to our factory in Assin Akrofuom for further processing. Within just three hours, Koa Pure is pasteurised, packaged and ready to be shipped. For the best quality juice, coming from the Ghanaian rainforest to the kitchens of the world.
We put great emphasis on adhering to all hygiene regulations throughout the entire production process. This is why we do thorough quality checks at every stage and digital process monitoring in real-time. By doing so, we can ensure that our products meet the highest quality requirements.
Working with the CMPU, I grew very fond of our innovation. I’m proud to see the team being so ambitious to further optimise the processing unit. Needless to say we want to increase the CMPU’s efficiency to work with even more farmers. In the end, the farmers are the centerpiece of our processes.

After we’ve established the decentralised process, it’s all about ensuring food quality. In a tropical environment, it’s a major challenge we’re facing – but well possible. It’s therefore even more fulfilling to achieve this daily.
