Barry Callebaut AG, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality chocolate and cocoa products, successfully closed the acquisition of the chocolate production facility from Mondel─ôz International in Halle, Belgium, as announced on September 15, 2016. This follows the completion of works council consultations and closing conditions. The factory in Halle, which was integrated into Barry Callebaut’s global manufacturing network as of January 1, 2017, will expand the company’s production capacity for quality Belgian chocolate and fillings. The transaction also includes a long-term agreement for the supply of an additional 30,000 tonnes of liquid chocolate per year to Mondel─ôz International, which will start in early 2017.
