Blommer Introduces Elevate Cocoa Butter Equivalent Product Line


Chicago — Blommer Chocolate Co. is debuting Elevate, a cocoa butter equivalent (CBE) that the company says is designed with innovation and cost efficiency as a high-quality alternative to traditional cocoa butter.

Blommer notes that global cocoa production is down nearly 11 percent this year, reported by the International Cocoa Organization. Scott Funk, senior vice-president of sales and marketing, says: “As the market value of cocoa butter continues to rise, it is exciting to have a product to offer our customers that provides an economically viable alternative without compromising on quality.”

Elevate coatings, which utilize CBE technology, were formulated to seamlessly integrate with cocoa butter, while exhibiting superior bloom resistance, ensuring a longer shelf life and maintaining the visual appeal, Blommer says. The intentional formulation achieves a chocolate-like sensory experience in both flavor release and meltability.

“With access to the most pioneering and advanced ingredient technologies from our parent company, Fuji Oil Holding Group, we can provide the ultimate and consistent solutions to satisfy our rapidly changing consumer needs. This is a game changer, delivering additional value and affordable indulgence for our customers and chocolate lovers in the U.S.,” says Mark Okita, COO and senior vice-president of commercial.

Elevate represents more than just a product line, the company states, adding it signifies Blommer’s commitment to innovation, sustainability, and customer satisfaction.
