Our Team

“We play a small but significant and impactful role in the world of cocoa and are widely known for our unique and specialized combination of production processes.”

We pride ourselves in a long tradition of specialised production techniques and innovative products, but we are equally proud of our substantial network in the food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries worldwide. Our mission is to add value in the industry by creating the best cocoa products we can in terms of quality, sustainability, and safety. 

Our offices

JS COCOA is globally active in creating high quality cocoa product. We operate from our headquarters in Zaandam, the Netherlands and our sister organization Resigha in Kumasi, Ghana. We operate in concordance with our understanding of our social and environmental responsibilities, both in the Netherlands and abroad. We safeguard that our products and production processes meet the highest standards for quality, health, and safety.
