Every chocolate maker is different, and there’s no definitive answers when it comes to deciding what equipment to use or where to source it.
On this page you’ll find some of the equipment suppliers we’ve used and have experience of, both large and small. Although a listing here is not a recommendations, in our experience we have found all these suppliers to be reliable and trustworthy.
It’s worth taking note of the location of each supplier. Although many will ship worldwide, sending heavy equipment around the world can be expensive and result in additional duties and fees.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the choice of equipment available, or are just looking for advice or consultancy to help fit out our chocolate workshop or factory, please get in touch. We provide a range of consultancy options and can help find the perfect solution for you.
