Based on its unparalleled innovation power, Barry Callebaut have recently unveiled at an exclusive event in San Francisco ‘Cacaofruit Experience’: an innovative range of products that celebrates the fresh, fruity taste and natural richness of the cacaofruit and marks the creation of a next-gen food & drink category.
As part of ‘Cacaofruit Experience’, the company also presented the artisan world with the delicious WholeFruit chocolate, a fresh, fruity delight made from 100% pure cacaofruit.
