Barry Callebaut Cocoa, Chocolate, Chocolate-Related Products, Fillings, Inclusions and Decorations
Barry Callebaut is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality cocoa, chocolate, chocolate-related products, fillings, inclusions and decorations.
Our products are used for all types of applications, including chocolate confectionery, ice-cream and desserts, chocolate dairy products, biscuits and bakery, and breakfast, snacking and sugar confectionery.
HEALTHY COCOA AND CHOCOLATE
Consumers are increasingly concerned about health issues, whilst at the same time not willing to give up their indulgences. Barry Callebaut is able to meet such emerging demands by offering chocolate products that help improve your health and wellbeing.
Examples of this are products such as chocolate reduced in sugar, sugar-free chocolate, fillings low in fatty acids, and de-fatted cocoa powder.
For extra benefits, we have developed ACTICOA® cocoa and chocolate. This is the only cocoa and chocolate that combines good taste with a guaranteed minimum polyphenol content. Our ACTICOA products strengthen and protect the human body in an entirely natural way.
ORGANIC COCOA AND CHOCOLATE
Barry Callebaut produces a range of certified products such as fairtrade, organic and kosher. Our organic and fairtrade products meet the strictest quality requirements.
We also offer cocoa and chocolate products that carry both fairtrade and organic certificates. You can be sure of adding a touch of natural goodness to any of your applications.
RARE VARIETIES OF COCOA BEAN
The concept of ‘origin products’ is currently very much in vogue. We always capture the overwhelming aromas that the cocoa bean offers, but our origin products provide extremely rare and highly sought after varieties that surpass even our usual high standards.
Our origin projects carry with them the inherent image of care, quality, devotion and expertise that goes into their production.
INNOVATIVE CHOCOLATE PRODUCTS
There is more to Barry Callebaut than just our products. Our approach is to establish close working partnerships with our customers, so that together we can create products which exceed consumers’ expectations.
The expertise we have built up means that rather than just understanding the trends in our customers’ markets, we can often anticipate them. R&D has always been one of our strengths and we have introduced many innovative products into a wide variety of markets.
It is here that our partnership approach particularly demonstrates its benefits. We do not simply help our customers by supplying their chosen ingredients, but can also offer support and advice about taste formulations, production processes and the many other aspects required for successful product development.
UNRIVALLED EXPERIENCE OF CHOCOLATE-MAKING
We have production sites all around the world and thousands of employees dedicated to providing our customers with nothing but the finest products and solutions.
Over the past 155 years, Barry Callebaut has built up unrivalled experience in every area of chocolate-making, from sourcing the best cocoa beans to creating and producing top-quality finished chocolate and chocolate-based products.
Our core values are customer focus, passion, entrepreneurship, team spirit and integrity.
