After experimenting with 3-D printing chocolate for years, Barry Callebaut has figured out a way for the printer to handle the tempering of the chocolate, a process that requires constant movement at specific temperatures and which could take as long as an hour in the past. Now, Barry Callebaut’s printers can print thousands of pieces in a much shorter time.

The move comes as the chocolate industry faces meager growth prospects. Barry Callebaut said last month that the global market stagnated in the three months through November. Lindt & Spruengli has said it plans to close 50 stores in the U.S.

Amid tech turmoil, celebration at global electronics show

  Amid tech turmoil, celebration at global electronics show The Consumer Electronics Show opening Tuesday offers a chance to showcase the newest and shiniest gadgetry, looking past the turmoil engulfing the global technology industry. The annual Las Vegas gathering with more than 4,500 exhibitors brings out about 175,000 attendees searching for innovations of the future. For an industry facing unprecedented turbulence, the hope is that what happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas after it closes on Friday, but filters into the world where consumers can adopt new technologies for health, communication, transportation, the home and lifestyles.

This led to additive manufacturing reaching numerous food markets , including the frozen dessert industry. Due to functional capabilities made possible by 3 D printing techniques, not only can consumers enjoy the creative designs of 3 D printed chocolate but so can professional chefs and

3 D printing enthusiasts noticed these problems and decided to improve the chocolate -making process by handing the job over to the 3 D printer .

Business clients can come up with their own designs, shapes and sizes, with the final creations fit for use in desserts, confectionery, hot drinks and pastries.

That reflects the current trend of personalization, consumers wanting to post pictures on Instagram, as well as demand for premium products, Pablo Perversi, Barry Callebaut’s head of innovation, said in a phone interview.

“The important thing is this is not a one-off type of printing like in the past,” he said. “We can produce at scale.”

The Zurich-based company makes chocolate for clients such as Nestle SA, Unilever and Hershey Co., whose names then appear on the labels.

Chocolate lovers looking for more personalized chocolate in stores will have to wait a few years, though. Barry Callebaut will first work with gourmet clients before entering the next phase with manufacturers, Perversi said. Dutch hotel chain Van der Valk will be its first customer.

Ultimately, consumers may even have 3-D chocolate printers next to their coffee machines in their kitchens.

“The idea of having a chocolate-printing machine at home with capsules that allow you to do something is a great idea,” Perversi said. “We haven’t gone as far as that just yet, but there are opportunities for us to do that and we’ll explore them.”
