Three global leaders in their respective sectors - Caotech, Carle & Montanari and Probat - have established a “preferred partnership” to better service the cocoa processing industry.
 
The three companies, each mastering different steps in cocoa processing, have joined their expertise and competence to provide customers who manufacture cocoa from the bean with turnkey cocoa processing plants.
 
Tailor-made solutions from the partnership are designed for cocoa processors to take advantage of reliable and modern lines at competitive prices. Customers will be able to discuss their projects with any of the three companies. Every step of the process will be managed by these experienced partners providing an integrated solution.
 
The Netherlands-based Caotech, a leading manufacturer of ball mills for processing cocoa, develops, together with its customers, the most effi cient production lines for cocoa. Using Caotech ball mills, producers of cocoa products are able to supply exactly what the market needs, with unit capacities ranging from 1,000 to 6,000 kg/hour.
 
Pre-grinding is done by beater blade mills for cocoa nibs, followed by fi ne grinding on low-speed ball mills. Headquartered near Milan, Italy, Carle & Montanari is also a world leader in the manufacture of machines, lines and complete turnkey solutions for cocoa processing, chocolate mass preparation and moulding.
 
It supplies complete manufacturing lines through the wrapping and secondary packaging of confectionery products. Carle & Montanari’s cocoa processing equipment includes the PO line of horizontal presses and their ancillary accessories, manufactured in a wide range of versions, with hourly capacity ranging from 450 kg/h up to 1,400 kg/h of cocoa mass.
 
The company also provides and installs complete lines from pressing to cooling and packaging of cocoa liquor, butter and powder. Probat, a global market leader in roasting machines and related equipment for the coffee and food industry, has been successfully active in the field of cocoa processing for years.
 
The German-based company designs, delivers and starts up complete lines for the cocoa industry and specializes in the production of nib roasting machines.
 
With a standard batch capacity of up to eight tons, the well-established Probat FRD/C is the largest cocoa nib roaster worldwide.
 
Besides roasting machines, Probat offers complete processing line solutions adapted to the special needs of the cocoa industry.
 
All three companies will be exhibiting at interpack this year and are encouraging attendees to discover the benefi ts of the new partnership in detail by visiting their respective booths: Caotech (Hall 3, Booth C24/C26); Carle & Montanari (Hall 3, Booth E31/F36); and Probat (Hall 2, Booth D12).
