Bunch Wrapping

Our ultra-high speed bunch wrapping department operates at speeds in excess of 100,000 pieces per hour.

Chocolate Tempering

Chocolate needs to be processed at different temperatures at different stages of production to allow crystals to form correctly. The formation of these crystals enables the product to de-mould more easily, take on an appealing shine, and produce a distinctive snap sound when broken.
