Small-scale processing is not just about shrinking machinery. At the same time, it is neither about inventing the wheel a second time. Based on a long experience of cocoa processing, small- and big-scale, in Europe as well as in cocoa growing countries, we strive to continuously improve small-scale processing specifications. This means to continuously keeping the mind open for new technologies and to test these according to given requirements.
We offer a plug and play solution that enables small-scale decentralized cocoa processing with maintained product quality. With an industrial engineering approach that takes both GMP (good manufacturing practice) and HACCP, the units can be used either for high-quality bean-to-bar projects or for local processing in cocoa-growing regions. In this way an increased value addition of raw cocoa beans at a local level can be enabled. The resulting output is a single-origin cocoa product, manufactured with high production standards.
For autonomous operation, the systems can be combined with renewable energy supply solutions that reduce the carbon footprint and assure an environmentally friendly production process.
