They understand that the right balance of ingredients is key for every application and desired taste profile. That is why they will work tirelessly to find the chocolate recipe that will help you create the perfect treat.


Sensory Expertise Center & Pilot Plant

Once a delicious idea has been born it is crucial to try, test and further develop it until it is ready for production.

At the Pilot Plant samples are created on a small-scale production line to test their potential. Once they are fitting every need scaling up can happen fast and efficiently.

The Sensory Expertise Center is where our panelists evaluate samples on texture, flavor, and smell amongst other attributes. Their decades of expertise allow us to design and tweak every product’s sensory profile until it is exactly what you are looking for.
