Facilities and Capabilities
Situated at the gateway to the stunning Mornington Peninsula, Chocolate Grove is housed in a purpose built facility. Since 2002, we have made extensive improvements and modifications to our plant. We now roast our own macadamias, new tempering, nut depositing and decoration equipment has been installed, panning capacity has doubled, and high speed cooking technology employed. We can bunch, pack and wrap product – in a single shift we can produce:
• 1.6 tonne of finished enrobed and decorated,
• 2.0 tonne of panned and polished chocolate coated or
• 0.5 tonne of moulded product.
With our local and export customer focus, the ability to handle large and small orders concurrently, has been a major factor in our exponential growth. Our facilities are close to major highways and freeways, linking us to deepwater port container facilities and Tullamarine International Airport.
With a pool of skilled labour available locally, we can promptly expand operations to suit bulk orders.
