Cargill invests in new facility to meet demand for Belgian chocolate

23 June 2018

Cargill has invested €12 million in a liquid chocolate production line in its Mouscron production facility in Belgium which will increase its capacity to produce milk and dark chocolate. 

The investment is a response to growing customer demand for high-quality chocolates, tailor-made to individual customer specifications. ?

The new production line will help food manufacturers innovate in a market characterised by rapidly changing consumer preferences and expectations. Inge Demeyere, managing director for Cargill's chocolates and compound activities in Europe, said: "Indulgence is a key driver of the demand for premium chocolate. With the new production line, we will be able to better meet Belgium's chocolate needs – and offer more quality Belgian chocolate to customers in other global markets."

The Mouscron facility processes dark and milk chocolate in liquid and solid form for manufacturers active in confectionery, biscuits, bakery, ice-cream and artisanal applications.
