Elephant brand Cocoa Cake is obtained by traditional pressing of cocoa mass made from finest cocoa beans of Ghana. The mass is produced after careful selection, perfect roasting, hulling and milling of best cocoa nibs. This is fed into hydraulic presses to remove a specific percentage of the cocoa butter fat, leaving behind cocoa cake.

The cocoa cake is either broken into smaller pieces (kibbled) and sold into the generic cocoa cake market, or ground into a fine powder.
