Chocolaterie de Bourgogne has been a key player in this market since 1985, and we thoroughly updated our lines in the 2000s. Production is currently based around two lines. The first, with a capacity to blend up to 5 cereals and/or fruits, was put to the test by the world’s leader in cereal bars and was certified « nut-free ». The second line can mix any type of nut (except peanuts) with any type of cereals.

The composition can be adjusted during production.Total consistencyOur lines are regulated by an extremely accurate feedback system, which can send real-time information back to the front of the chain concerning bar shape and coating thickness.Automated cleaningBelt cleaning is automated and calibrated with production, keeping line stoppage to a minimum and ensuring the highest level of hygiene.Ultra-modern packagingAt the end of the chain, our lines are fitted with a High Speed Machine Flowpack (HSMF) system, enabling to put in flowpacks more than 600 bars per minute, and with three robots dedicated to sleeve packaging.
