How is Cocoa Paper Made?

Sure, chocolate is great - but have you ever used cocoa paper? The cocoa bean is delicious and additionally extremely practical by nature. Grass paper, hemp paper, cocoa paper: Nowadays, there are several alternatives from natural raw materials for producing paper or cardboard. After all, materials from the environment are a renewable resource. Cocoa paper is made from residuals of the cocoa bean and is particularly sustainable in its production. The cocoa fruit needs a lot of warmth and moisture, which is why it is cultivated around the equator. Approximately 70 percent of the harvest comes from West Africa.

The cocoa bean, along with the fruit pulp, is contained within the cocoa fruit, which can be easily separated. To obtain the pure beans, they are roasted. Cocoa shells are left as a byproduct of roasting. In a special process, cocoa fibers are extracted from these shells. These fibers are then mixed with conventional paper fibers. The result is paper with a pleasant texture and an attractive appearance. The brown paper is streaked with dark, almost black spots, giving it an extraordinary and unique look that catches the eye of your customers.
