Celebrating Earth Day everyday, with the upcycled cacaofruit

Food waste is one of the biggest environmental challenges of our lifetime and it must be eliminated at all costs. We can prevent climate change by simply reducing our food waste. Cabosse Naturals makes a positive impact by upcycling the cacaofruit and unlocking the next generation of food and beverages for consumers globally.

The upcycled cacaofruit: 100% pure and natural ingredients

Globally, we throw away 50% of all fruit and vegetables, and in the case of cacaofruit it's even 70%, making it one of the most wasted fruits on the planet. Traditionally, the cacaofruit has been harvested for its seeds to use in the manufacture of chocolate.

However, the seeds represent only about 30% of the fruit, meaning that 70% - its pulp and peel - has been discarded. If all harvested cacaofruit was used to its fullest, it would reduce the same amount of CO2 as planting 3.5 billion trees per year. That’s an area bigger than France and Germany combined.

Can you imagine throwing an apple away after collecting the seeds? Neither could we. Cabosse Naturals - the global expert in cacaofruit - has started upcycling this largely undiscovered fruit by developing a new supply chain and introducing a range of 100% pure cacaofruit ingredients.

In September, Waitrose launched its No 1 WholeFruit chocolate bar, made from 100% pure cacaofruit, and energy drink brand Kayu has also launched the first plant-based cacaofruit drink in the UK. The brand also predicts more new products containing ingredients from upcycled cacaofruit will soon launch.

In 2022 Chocolatier Vandenbulcke (Belgium) won the golden medal at the ISM in Cologne, the world’s leading trade fair for confectionery and snacks, with the Cabosse praline. A cacaofruit shape made of dark chocolate, with an intense, fruity filling created with the upcycled cacaofruit pulp.
