Barry Callebaut to acquire Europe Chocolate Company in Belgium
Expanding the Group's value adding specialties capabilities
We have a long-standing relationship with ECC and strongly believe in the growth opportunities of highly customized industrial specialty chocolate ingredients. The acquisition will help us to further broaden our market position thanks to ECC’s unique know-how and its highly flexible manufacturing facility in Belgium.
Wim Debedts, Vice President Food Manufacturers Western Europe at Barry Callebaut
I am very proud of the specialty chocolate business we have built from scratch over the past close to 30 years. Joining the Barry Callebaut family will enable and accelerate ECC’s growth with access to new customers, new geographies via a broad sales network, helping to accentuate our unique proposition.
