Cocoa Butter (Food Grade)

6 reviews

Cocoa Butter (Food Grade)

6 reviews

Baraka Cocoa Butter is made from sustainably grown and community harvested cocoa beans. Originating from small-holder farms, the beans are harvested and prepared using traditional techniques.

As our cocoa butter is crafted in small batches, some natural variation in scent is normal. Occasionally, the cocoa butter may have a stronger roasted chocolate scent.

Please note: Food Grade Cocoa Butter is sold for cosmetic use. The Food Grade designation simply refers to the fact that it is put through a micro-filter to remove micro-solids to the level required for high-end chocolate making.

    Delightful Surprise

    I was searching for a company with a social and fair-trade mission to buy my shea butter. During my search, I came across Baraka Shea Butter. I placed an order for shea butter, cocoa butter, and palm oil. When, I received the order there was an issue with the shea butter. I reached out the company that evening and within three hours the founder contacted me. He immediately apologized and sent me another butter that was perfect. The palm oil and cocoa butter also good quality. I was amazed by the level of customer service and expediency showed in addressing my issue. I am all for great products, however, company that value building a relationship of trust with their customers is priceless. Thank you Baraka Shea Butter for great product and excellent customer service.
