SINGAPORE – Barry Callebaut has just added a 4th chocolate line to its chocolate factory in Singapore to boost the volume of production for the Asia Pacific market. The facility is located in Senoko, in the northern part of Singapore.
Ben De Schryver, president of Barry Callebaut Asia Pacific, said the continued expansion of the factory illustrates the company’s long-term commitment to Singapore.
“We look forward to continuing working with the government, local institutions, and our customers and partners to realize our role as the leading chocolate manufacturer in this country.
We are very encouraged by the steady growth of Singapore’s food industry which would not have been possible without the country’s strong reputation in food safety and quality. For us, this expansion in Singapore is also about paving the way for our business to be more efficient overall and bringing more innovations to the markets”
As the plant unveils the new production line, it shows off new state of the art equipment that has the ability to produce chocolate blocks of different volumes, all at a high-efficiency rate.
Adding to its high performance, the fourth line also boasts higher quality and safety standards, both of which are crucial aspects of food production.
In addition to the first three chocolate lines in Singapore, the fourth production line helps Barry Callebaut meet increased demand from Southeast Asian countries, South Korea and beyond.
