Cargill to Double Capacity at Belgian Chocolate Facility

MOUSCRON, BelgiumCargill Cocoa & Chocolate broke ground on a $48 million project to double the capacity of its Belgian chocolate production facility in Mouscron over the next two years. The additional capacity will meet growing demand for chocolate in confectionary, bakery, dairy and artisanal applications from European customers.

The investment will increase capacity of both liquid dark or milk chocolate and solid chocolate drops and chunks. The new facility, slated to be operational in summer 2014, will source raw materials like cocoa butter from Cargills integrated cocoa processing plants in The Netherlands and France.

With this investment, Cargill demonstrates its commitment to providing our customers with a broader and more bespoke service and enlarged range of chocolate recipes to meet their individual needs," said Jos de Loor, president, Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate. The extension of our state-of-the-art facility in Mouscron along with our food ingredient expertise will support our cocoa and chocolate growth strategy."
