The production process is thus underpinned by up-to-the-minute expertise and equipment, and is guided continually by specialised research, bespoke recipe development, and the highest standards of training.
We deploy a wide spectrum of research, even when we are dealing with very special cases (researching and testing sugar-free chocolates for instance). Our teams also specialise in the professional testing of oily seeds and nuts such as peanuts, as well as sesame and shea seeds. Tempering equipment is installed at Royal Duyvis Wiener’s Food Academy for the tempering of cocoa butter and liquor as well as cocoa powder. DSC graphs are used to monitor tempering results with the utmost accuracy, whilst fineness results are analysed using the latest Sympatec laser diffraction equipment.
