Chocolate of the future will come in ‘crazy’ shapes.
CHOCOLATE giant The Hershey Company has jumped onto the 3D printing bandwagon and could soon be bringing all sorts of crazy chocolate shapes to a machine near you.
North America’s largest chocolate producer has entered into a multi-year contract with printing provider 3D Systems, to develop a range of 3D printed edible sweet treats.
“Whether it’s creating a whole new form of candy or developing a new way to produce it, we embrace new technologies such as 3D printing as a way to keep moving our timeless confectionery treats into the future,”said William Papa, vice president and chief research and development officer at The Hershey Company.
3D Systems is well known for its 3D food printing technology, notably the Chef Jet Pro 3D Printer, which it debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year.
Earlier this month, Italian food company Barilla announced that it was working with Dutch organisation TNO to develop a 3D printer capable of producing 15 to 20 pieces of pasta every two minutes. – AFP Relaxnews
