Cocoa processing involves mixing the selected cocoa material with an aqueous solution of a specific alkaline compound at increased temperatures and possibly increased pressures. The two main methods involved in cocoa processing include fermentation and drying. Cocoa products, such as cocoa butter, are used as an essential ingredient in the formulation of over-the-counter personal care products, including lotions, lip balls, creams, and soap bars, that help humidify the skin and treat chapped lips.

Nigeria Cocoa Processing Market Trends:

The market in Nigeria is primarily driven by the increasing awareness about the health benefits offered by cocoa beans. In line with this, cocoa continues to be an important raw material for the chocolate industry in Nigeria, which is positively influencing the cocoa processing market. Furthermore, the widespread application of the product in bakeries, milk and beverage products, cosmetics, and personal care products is catalyzing the market across the country. Moreover, due to their antioxidant, anti-ageing, and anti-inflammatory properties, cocoa beans are extensively used in the pharmaceutical industry, thus favoring the market growth. Additionally, the Federal Government of Nigeria is taking various favorable initiatives to increase cocoa bean production. They are offering subsidies for cocoa farmers, which is expected to create numerous growth opportunities in the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include the inflating disposable income levels of the masses, the introduction of flavored chocolates, and the easy product availability via online and offline organized retail channels.
