"New chocolate innovations 2022 and beyond"
In a fast-paced global market, it’s difficult to keep up with today’s everchanging consumer tastes and demands and there are many local and global drivers that are influencing these changes. Brands that stay head lead by emulating credibility, being contemporary and innovative.
The primary cocoa processing equipment
The primary cocoa processing equipment includes roasting machines, peeling and grinding machines, pressing machines, and powder making machines. The roasting machine is used to roast the cocoa beans at a specific temperature range of 70-100℃ to develop the desired flavor components. The peeling and grinding machines are used to remove the cocoa pod shells and crush the roasted cocoa beans into a paste. The pressing machine extracts cocoa butter from the paste, leaving behind the cocoa press cake. The powder making machine grinds the cocoa press cake into cocoa powders of different specifications.
Advanced features of cocoa processing machines
The advanced cocoa processing machines offer several features that help in producing high-quality cocoa powders and chocolates. These advanced features of cocoa processing machines are changing the way chocolate manufacturers produce their products. With automation, digitalization, sustainability, and customization, these machines are becoming increasingly sophisticated and efficient.

Applications of cocoa processing machines
Cocoa processing machines have several applications in the chocolate industry, including:
- Production of chocolate: The cocoa processing machines are used to produce high-quality chocolates of different flavors, shapes, and sizes.
- Production of cocoa Liquor: The cocoa processing machines extract cocoa butter from the cocoa paste, leaving behind the cocoa press cake. The cocoa press cake is further ground into cocoa powders or processed into cocoa liquor, which is used in various chocolate recipes.
- Production of cocoa powders: The cocoa processing machines grind the cocoa press cake into cocoa powders of different specifications, including alkalised and non-alkalised cocoa powders. The cocoa powders are used in various chocolate recipes, baking, and confectionery.
- Stone removal: The cocoa processing machines offer stone removal features, removing foreign materials and ensuring product quality.
- Agglomeration process: The cocoa processing machines offer an agglomeration process, preventing the agglomeration of cocoa powders and ensuring product quality.
- Separate machinery: The cocoa processing machines are available as individual ‘stand-alone’ machines or as part of turnkey facilities for industrial size factories. The machines can handle large throughput capacities and are ideal for small-scale production or large-scale industrial production.
- Variable product feeding: The advanced cocoa processing machines offer variable product feeding, allowing the machines to handle different bean types and capacities. The machines can handle cashew nut, almond, sunflower, pistachio, sesame, peanut, seed, and raw cocoa bean.
- Cleaning characteristics: The advanced cocoa processing machines offer complete cleaning plants, including the product re-circulation mixing tank and acid in cocoa powder sterilization process, ensuring product safety and quality.
