Guan Chong Berhad is the largest cocoa processor in Asia and joint 4th largest in the world. It has an annual grinding capacity of 250,000 MT. The group provides cocoa-derived food ingredients such as cocoa liquor, cocoa butter, and cocoa powder to its customers, including several MNCs, through its wide distribution network and exports to more than 70 countries. GCB’s main operations are cocoa processing, where it grinds cocoa beans into semi-finished products, e.g. cocoa butter, cocoa liquor, cocoa cake and cocoa powder. We think that the demand for chocolate product is going to be evergreen, thus this drives the demand vertically throughout the entire supply chain. Through a cost-plus model and active hedging of its business model and the de-commoditisation of its cocoa powder, GCB will be less affected by demand/supply shocks.
