Cocoa is the most important raw material for chocolate. It is further processed into cocoa liquor, cocoa butter or even cocoa powder. The future quality is already decided during harvesting and further processing. Many steps are necessary to turn a simple cocoa bean into an exquisite chocolate specialty. The result is delicious chocolates, pralines and everything that can be covered with chocolate. Our technicians know all the steps of chocolate production and provide knowledge and expertise.
