Cargill Inc., headquartered in Wayzata, MN, has invested €3.5 million (about US$4.16 million) in its Kalmthout, Belgium, facility. The investment will increase the company’s capability for producing gourmet chocolate by adding a fifth gourmet production line and new chocolate tanks within the facility. The expansion also adds 12 new jobs. The addition follows Cargill’s purchase of Smet in 2019. Smet is a Belgium-based supplier of chocolate and sweets decorations to the food service and confectionary markets. Cargill’s cocoa and chocolate business includes processing plants in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Côte d’Ivoire, France, Germany, Ghana, Indonesia, the Netherlands, the UK, and the US.
