Total concept

So why doesn't every (chocolate) company offer personalized chocolate? The main problem is that they need equipment and software that ‘your average chocolatier’ doesn't have in house. One solution is outsourcing this process to third parties, although this also has its drawbacks. Examples are generally longer delivery times and not being able to deliver in small batches. As an expert in the field of chocolate packaging, we developed the solution for producing custom chocolate packaging in small batches: the ‘Personalized Chocolate Concept’ (PCC)

The PCC comprises a web-based application, industrial printer, precision cutter and our BTB25 packaging machine. Our total concept makes it as easy as 1-2-3 to create your own exclusive, personalized chocolate.
