At Prosweets, Caotech will discuss the latest developments on cocoa, chocolate and compound processing.

Drawing upon years of expertise in conjunction with its extensive field experience, the company launched a number of developments in the field of cocoa, chocolate and compound applications in 2010/2011.

Traditionally Caotech’s scope of supply covers a wide variety of installations, varying from a small lab size ball mill type CAO B5 + lab conche CWC 5, the well-known CAO B2000-CHOC batch installation and theCAO 3000 as a component in a continuous production line for both cocoa and chocolate as well as complete turnkey projects.

The company’s sophisticated CAO 3000-CHOC In-Line installation, a fully automated processing line for the production of chocolate and compound is designed for capacities of up to 1,500 kg per hour.
