The Barry Callebaut Group has this week opened its relocated Callebaut® Chocolate Academy centre and sales office in Mumbai, India. Serving as a venue for the exchange of technical skills and training for all aspects related to chocolate and cocoa products, it is one of 19 training centres managed by the company’s gourmet division.

Dhruv Bhatia, Barry Callebaut’s Managing Director in India, said: ‘The new centre is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, and includes a wide range of workshops, courses and demonstrations for professional customers in all sectors.
‘They will be able to benefit from the modern kitchen and the equipment that the academy is equipped with, to perfect their expertise in chocolate under the guidance of Callebaut’s specially trained chefs and the elite Chocolate Ambassadors Club.’

According to market research firm Euromonitor, India is one the fastest-growing confectionery markets, where the average unit price grew by 8% in 2015.

Denis Convert, Vice President of Gourmet Asia Pacific, Barry Callebaut, added: ‘The opening of the new Callebaut centre in India is a symbolic move in promoting our position as a leader in the gourmet chocolate sector in the region.
It is the place where budding chefs can learn more from the experts, and where experienced chefs can experiment with new creations using Callebaut’s wide inventory of high quality gourmet chocolate and cocoa products.’

Around 38,000 professionals and artisans receive training at the Callebaut’s Chocolate Academies each year.
