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 Colombia.
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.
The current focus is to sell these products wholesale to other businesses such as chocolatiers, bakers, candy producers and related businesses.
