Barry Callebaut adds 4th chocolate production line in Singapore
 
Barry Callebaut, leading cocoa and chocolate ingredients processor, has added a 4th chocolate production line in Singapore that will boost the volume of chocolate for the Asia Pacific market. Currently, Callebaut is also Singapore’s largest industrial chocolate manufacturer with 23 years’ presence in this country.
The continued expansion of this factory reaffirms Barry Callebaut’s long-term commitment in Singapore as it works closely with the government, local institutions, and its customers and partners in this country and the region.
Ben De Schryver, President of Barry Callebaut Asia Pacific said, “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.”
The new production line also boasts of new state of the art equipment that has the ability to produce chocolate blocks of different volumes, all at a high-efficiency rate. In addition, the new line also has higher quality and safety standards, both of which are crucial aspects of food production.
In addition to the first 3 chocolate lines in Singapore, the 4th production line will also help meet increasing demand for gourmet and artisanal chocolate products from Southeast Asian countries, South Korea and beyond.
Barry Callebaut’s factory in Singapore was established in 1997 in Senoko, in northern part of Singapore and has been instrumental for the company’s growth in the region. This plant is not only the No.1 industrial chocolate factory in Singapore with the highest volume, but it is also the biggest chocolate factory in Asia Pacific for Barry Callebaut.
Since the opening, the Barry Callebaut Group has made significant investments in the country which includes the acquisition of Singapore-listed Delfi Cocoa in 2013, and making major investments in another new line and a warehouse in 2015/2016 period. Meanwhile, the regional headquarters of Barry Callebaut and its CHOCOLATE ACADEMY™ Center are also based in Singapore.
The new 4th line is part of the group’s growing investments within the Asia Pacific Region. Barry Callebaut has also recently announced its decision to acquire GKC Foods in Australia and the groundbreaking of a new chocolate factory in India.
Barry Callebaut is the largest producer of chocolate and cocoa products in Asia Pacific and presently runs 10 chocolate and cocoa factories across Asia namely in China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore. Barry Callebaut supplies to global and local food manufacturers, artisanal and professional users of chocolate such as chocolatiers, pastry chefs, bakers, hotels, restaurants and caterers.
