A major US$18 million expansion of Barry Callebaut’s facility in Singapore includes installation of a third production line, a chocolate chips/drops moulding line and a warehouse.

The new chocolate chips/drops moulding line will enable production of different recipes or product shapes sizes to satisfy market demand. The facility also now houses 2,600 sq m of warehouse space, facilitating more efficient deliveries of its chocolate products.

The majority of the chocolate produced in the factory in Singapore are largely exported to global and local food manufacturers across the region.

Besides the three lines for chocolate manufacturing, the facility also houses a chocolate academy which tests and develops new chocolate products and recipes, as well as helping with training and demonstrations for chocolate artisans, pastry chefs, confectioners, bakers and caterers.

The manufacturing plant is located on a 1.2 hectare site in Senoko South Road near Woodlands. The company’s headquarters for the Asia Pacific region has been in Singapore since 1997.

“Barry Callebaut has its history in Singapore and the new expansion in this country will further optimise our footprint while further growing our business to meet the growing demand in this region,” said Ben De Schryver, Asia Pacific president of Barry Callebaut.
