Those with a sweet tooth shall enjoy the report because we are going to show you how chocolate and chocolate candies are made.
Before entering the factory, they ask you to put on special gowns, disposable shoe covers and hats.
After that, they will give you some instructions on what is allowed and what is prohibited at the factory.
The production process can be divided into four stages:
1. Chocolate paste production (they mix such ingredients as cocoa, palm oil, etc.).
2. “Technical chocolate” production. Itâ€™s pretty much the same as Stage 1 but the chocolate they make is solid. It is used, for example, in ice cream production to make chocolate-covered ice cream.
3. Chocolate candies production (they use chocolate paste and add all kinds of fillings).
4. Chocolate bars production.
We are in the technical chocolate production department. Those cisterns contain ingredients which are treated in a certain way and then mixed.
They take samples of chocolate paste for testing from time to time.
The man in the background is a technician. He makes sure the line works well. Actually, itâ€™s all automated and peopleâ€™s main task is to control.
A stream of hot chocolate flows into the box.
Itâ€™s very hard to resist the temptation!
In this department, they chill their chocolate paste to make chocolate chips.
They pass the chocolate through the sieve to remove solid fractions.
As you know, they chill their chocolate to make technical chocolate (chocolate chips).
Then they treat their chocolate chips to make little chocolate coins for convenient packing and transportation.
They pack their chocolate coins into boxes.
Thatâ€™s all about chocolate paste and technical chocolate production.
Unfortunately, photography is not allowed in the department where chocolate candies are made. One of the most amazing things there is a candy-packing machine. It wraps up each candy in foil and it makes it incredibly fast!
Now letâ€™s go into the department where chocolate bars are made.
