Our Company

We specialize in the trade of raw cocoa beans and cocoa products (liquor, butter, cake, and powder) for the chocolate manufacturing industry.

What We Stand For

We are convinced that trading cocoa is not just a matter of buying and selling a raw commodity; it’s a business-partnership connecting people.


We believe in building long-lasting relationships based on trust and integrity, so we can all build healthy supply chains that deliver value to everyone.


It is our shared responsibility.

Our Mission

Albrecht & Dill Trading is Germany’s leading trade house in cocoa established in 1806.


Our deep understanding of the industry, solid relations on the ground and ever-increasing product expertise, make us a reliable and strong partner in the cocoa supply chain.


We are committed to sustainably source and deliver good quality cocoa in time, while providing flexibility.


Our Core Values

Quote from our CEO

“We look back on more than 200 years of history in which markets and businesses constantly changed. It has always been necessary to adapt and rethink our structure in order to stay successful. Due to my experience from close to 40 years in the business, I am convinced that cocoa trading will and has to change in the coming years towards more sustainable supply chains. We want to have a positive impact on the quality of life of the farmers we source from, as well as on the environment in the countries of origin. This is why A&D is committed to set up and support dedicated projects, so that by 2030 the majority of our cocoa can get sourced in a sustainable and transparent way.”
