Cargill partners with Voyage Foods to scale up alternatives to cocoa-based products

The commercial partnership will also provide food manufacturers with nut spreads produced with no nut or dairy allergens used in the recipe formulation

Cargill announces a new commercial partnership with Voyage Foods to scale up and deliver delicious, healthy and particularly more sustainable alternatives to cocoa-based products along with nut spreads without their traditional ingredients – peanuts & hazelnuts.

Cargill will be the exclusive B2B global distributor for Voyage Foods, expanding its traditional chocolate portfolio to bring even more sustainable alternatives for cocoa-based products to its customers for the first time. These alternatives to cocoa-based products – or the cocoa-free confectionery range – will be used in the recipe formulation for categories such as bakery, ice cream and confectionery, complementing and diversifying Cargill’s traditional chocolate portfolio to provide a broader range of vegan solutions, label-friendly, and produced with no nut nor dairy allergens used in the recipe formulation.

“Cargill is proud to partner with Voyage Foods, investing in the next generation of even more sustainable food solutions. We want to be our customers’ source of inspiration and growth, setting new standards for innovating and collaborating. To do this, we’re anticipating future trends by focusing on exciting, high-value categories such as ice cream, sweet bakery and chocolate confectionery,” explains Inge Demeyere, Managing Director of bakery, ice cream and chocolate confectionery Europe at Cargill.

“Alternatives to cocoa-based products are a great accompaniment to the traditional chocolate solutions that Cargill offers its customers,” she adds. “This partnership is just one of the many ways that we are future-proofing our portfolio and meeting consumer demands and market regulations when it comes to even more sustainable options.”

Voyage Foods uses its proprietary technology to replicate products and applications with the chocolate flavour consumers know and love.
