Cargill teams up with Voyage Foods for sustainable sweets

April 12, 2024

In a move to expand its product offerings and cater to evolving consumer preferences, Cargill has partnered with Voyage Foods. This collaboration focuses on developing and scaling up production of sustainable alternatives to cocoa-based products. These alternatives will be free from nut and dairy allergens, making them suitable for a wider range of dietary needs.

Cargill will leverage its extensive reach as the exclusive global distributor for Voyage Foods' B2B sales. This partnership allows Cargill to introduce a new line of cocoa-free confectionery to its existing chocolate portfolio. These innovative ingredients can be used in various applications, including bakery items, ice cream, and other confections.

The new product line caters to the growing demand for vegan and allergen-friendly options. It also aligns with Cargill's commitment to sustainable practices.

"Our goal is to be a leading source of inspiration and growth for our customers," said Inge Demeyere, Managing Director for Cargill's bakery, ice cream, and chocolate confectionery division in Europe. "By anticipating future trends and focusing on high-value categories, we can set new standards for collaboration and innovation."

Demeyere emphasizes that the cocoa-free alternatives complement Cargill's existing chocolate offerings. "This partnership exemplifies our commitment to future-proofing our portfolio," she explains. "We're constantly working to meet consumer demands and market regulations for more sustainable options."

Voyage Foods utilizes its proprietary technology to create cocoa-free products that deliver a delicious chocolate flavor.

"Partnering with Cargill, a recognized leader in the food industry, provides the perfect platform to scale up our solutions globally,"  added Adam Maxwell, CEO & Founder of Voyage Foods. "This collaboration allows food manufacturers to integrate our cocoa-free confections and spreads, free from nut and dairy allergens, into their product lines. Together, we can make a significant positive impact on people and the planet."
