Barry Callebaut, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products, has officially inaugurated its expanded state-of-the art chocolate factory located inToluca, 65 km southwest from Mexico City. Barry Callebaut acquired the industrial chocolate and compound production facility in Toluca from Chocolates Turin in 2011 to further strengthen the company’s presence in fast-growing emerging markets. In January 2012, Barry Callebaut announced the expansion of the acquired factory based on the signing of a long-term outsourcing agreement with Grupo Bimbo.

Together with its chocolate factory in Monterrey, Mexico, the extension of the factory in Toluca marks an important cornerstone in Barry Callebaut’s strategy to expand into emerging markets that offer above-average growth opportunities. For Barry Callebaut, it makes Mexico the fourth biggest country in terms of liquid chocolate production capacity worldwide.

With an annual production capacity of around 65,000 tonnes, Toluca will be among the largest factories within Barry Callebaut’s global network. Since fiscal year 2011/12, the total amount invested in the Toluca factory is approximately SFr45 million (Eur37 million).

Barry Callebaut established operations in Mexico in 2009 when it opened its first chocolate factory in Monterrey. Barry Callebaut operates ten chocolate, two cocoa and one combined (cocoa and chocolate) factories in the Americas.
