About us

Panamir products are highly regarded worldwide. At first, the company, founded in 2008 by Estonian citizen Kirill Gorlach, was engaged in logistics. Then it offered brokerage services for the sale of coffee and cocoa, following which it finally chose its true path. In 2017, Panamir opened its own production facility with unique equipment for the processing of cocoa beans. We obtain the perfect product from high quality raw materials. The factory is special due to its geography, because it is located in the Estonian city of Keila, between the main ports in the Baltic Sea. Thanks to its location, Panamir has significant logistical advantages, delivering products by sea to Europe and carrying out rail transportation to Asia and Russia. Thus, delivery from Panamir is always beneficial for you.

The company’s products meet the highest standards. Three processes take place in the factory:

1. Cleaning and sorting of cocoa beans

2. Grinding and roasting

3. Grinding of cocoa nibs for the production of grated cocoa, cocoa butter and cocoa powder

An individual cocoa bean goes through the full processing cycle: sifting and removing impurities (stones, dirt, etc.), roasting, grinding, sterilizing and vacuum packaging.

The quality of Panamir products is characterized by significant investments made in the factory’s processing equipment. It was developed by the best European companies (for example, the cocoa mass production line is from Caotech b.v. Grinding Technology). The factory has it’s own laboratory, which relentlessly monitors the quality of cocoa mass, cocoa powder and cocoa butter produced, as well as the process of cleaning and storing cocoa beans. The products are certified according to the ISO and HACCP standards.

Panamir’s many years of experience in logistics and production has ensured its sustained economic growth. Back in 2016, the company’s total sales amounted to 250 tons, but in 2019 they reached 5,000 tons. Panamir’s turnover in 2019 increased to 16.6 million euros. Today the company is a regular supplier of such well-known chocolate manufacturers as United Confectioners (Rot Front and Babaevsky and other confectionery factories of this corporate group), Wawel, Kommunarka, Spartak, Bayan-Sulu, Victory of the Taste,etc.
