Cocoa Paper, An Eco-Friendly, Food-Safe Packaging Option


Every year, nearly 430,000 tons of cocoa shells, a by-product of the cocoa production process, are not utilized around the world. 

Recently, LeafLAB began marketing its first products: Cocoa Paper and Cocoa Fibers. Created from cocoa shells (a delicate skin surrounding cocoa beans) and having acquired food contact certification, Cocoa Paper is the first natural paper especially imagined for chocolate and confectionery manufacturers, as well as specialized converters. Because it utilizes the cocoa shells, which have typically been considered a by-product, Cocoa Paper can be considered as an “eco-efficient ” alternative to classic packaging.
