Callebaut Chocolate Couvertures
Callebaut is well known and respected in our industry for the great taste and workability of their chocolate/couverture.
“As a company, Callebaut has only one objective,” says Vincenzo Mangano - Sales Director UK & Ireland, “-to produce chocolate of such superior quality and workability that we support the chocolate craftsmen in their efforts to create wonderful chocolate products which will always excite the end consumers.”
Crafted in Belgium for more than 100 years, Callebaut is one of the very rare chocolate makers to source the beans directly and process them from bean to chocolate. Thanks to this, Callebaut delivers consistency every time, enabling your finished creations to achieve and maintain the highest of standards.
The Callebaut range has a huge offering. Their standard grades include a wide selection of cocoa percentages and flavour profiles at competitive prices. Coloured and flavoured chocolates offer options with which to get creative, through to Callebaut Origins which excite with a choice of incredible flavours from tropical countries, with the latest addition coming from Brazil and let’s not forget Ruby - the "4th chocolate"!
With every block or pack of Callebaut® Finest Belgian Chocolate you purchase, you are supporting local cocoa farmers in West Africa with farmer training and community projects – in partnership with the Cocoa Horizons Foundation. By improving farmer livelihoods and supporting them in turning cocoa cultivation into a sustainable source of income, this helps secure the future of cocoa farming, today and tomorrow.
Callebaut Ingredients Products
As well as chocolate, Callebaut supply huge ranges of fillings including ready prepared fillings, pralines and gianduja, as well as décor, ground chocolate for drinks, gelato mixes, nuts, truffle shells, cups and bakestable products.
Callebaut Ruby Chocolate
In 2018 Callebaut Ruby chocolate was launched, or RB1. Ruby is the most exciting discovery in 80 years. Headed up as the fourth chocolate, after dark, milk and white, Ruby has a naturally occurring pink colour and an intense fruity flavour of red berries partnered with fresh, sour notes. Ruby is made from existing cocoa bean varieties that have been identified as having the right attributes to be processed into chocolate with no added colour or fruit flavourings.
Callebaut ChocoGelato Range
With the aim of creating the best chocolate gelato taste available on the market, Callebaut released their chocolate gelato mixes in February 2018, at the ICA Expo in Harrogate. From dark to white, they are the only professional gelato range available made with ‘real chocolate’. The products offer chocolatiers the opportunity to add a lucrative extra revenue stream to their business; an invaluable option when chocolate sales can slow down in the summer.
