Cargill Invests $20M to Upgrade German Chocolate, Cocoa Facilities

WORMER, The NetherlandsCargill is investing nearly 20 million in its newly acquired cocoa and chocolate facilities in Berlin to upgrade. The investment will enhance Cargills leading position in Germany, the largest chocolate market in Europe, and create two state-of-the-art cocoa and chocolate facilities to better serve customers in the bakery, confectionery and ice-cream categories with a broad portfolio of chocolate, cocoa powder, cocoa liquor and cocoa butter.

Upgrading its Lichtenrade and Reinickendorf production sites in Berlin will increase the capacities of specific product lines and strengthen Cargills ability to provide a high-quality cocoa and chocolate portfolio. The expansions also will enable efficient integration within Cargills global network and optimize product flows to customers.

Cargills cocoa and chocolate facilities in Germany are part of its wider cocoa and chocolate network in Western Europe, Côte dIvoire, Ghana, Brazil, Canada and the United States.

This investment highlights Cargills ongoing commitment to helping our customers meet the growing consumer demand for chocolate particularly in Germany and Eastern Europe," said Jos De Loor, managing director, Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate. By upgrading, expanding and integrating these two production sites into our wider cocoa and chocolate network, we are better placed to serve our customers and seamlessly provide them with the best quality product from the most appropriate site."
