Caotech b.v., based in Wormerveer - the Netherlands, has a worldwide reputation as specialist in self-developed ball mills and conches within the cocoa and chocolate-related processing sector.

The photo illustrates our best selling line at the moment for Caotech, the CAO 3000 CHOC (In-Line) installation as it appeared at the recent ProSweets Exhibition, a fully automated processing line for the production of chocolate and compound with capacities of up to 1,500 kg per hour. It is our ‘top line,’ and provides a good return on investment. Customers can produce against very low operational costs, thus earning a quick payback. 

At this moment, we are supplying most of our equipment to companies in emerging countries where customers appreciate the level of automation and efficiency we can supply them. Thus, it’s no surprise that they’ve become very familiar about how to get to Holland.

In addition, the continuing growth of niche markets, such as organic and fair trade, fits perfectly with our ability to supply the right equipment.
