Chocolate Inn / Taylor & Grant Celebrates Promotional Products Work With Factory Tour for SAGGNY Members
Chocolate Inn / Taylor & Grant, Freeport, N.Y., invited SAAGNY members for a tour of the facility. Nearly 25 distributors visited the factory and got an up-close look at Chocolate Inn / Taylor & Grant's production of food, mint and candy.
Distributors viewed the process of molding custom chocolates from start to finish—from the tempering of the chocolate to the molding, cooling wrapping and packaging of each piece. One attendee witnessed an order for one of her clients being produced during the tour.
In addition to seeing how chocolates were molded, the participants also observed the other decorating techniques employed within the factory, watched as mint tins were printed, filled and sealed, witnessed how smaller candies are individually wrapped, and learned the steps in place to ensure all orders are produced in strict compliance with SQF food manufacturing and handling regulations.
“It is always a pleasure to invite distributors into our factory," Jeff DePalma, Chocolate Inn’s vice president of sales, said. "Not only is it an enjoyable experience, but also a significantly educational one. The breadth and depth of our product line, along with the creativity our category offers, always creates opportunities on both sides of the table."
“The tour was fantastic and very informative and the sample kit was the tastiest one I have ever received," added Tom Rondi of Geiger, Lewiston, Maine. "Thank you to everyone who pulled this together.”
