A shelf-life system to manage chocolate production and sales
‘The Chocolatier’s Kitchen’ introduces an easy-to-use shelf life system made to serve chocolatiers who consider expanding their business through online sales or scaling up – while maintaining the high quality of artisanal products.
It divides recipes for confectionery products into short (2 weeks) to medium (8 weeks) and longer (6 months) shelf lives. This shelf-life system allows chocolatiers to vary their offering to offer ultimate freshness and high-quality products that remain enjoyable, even after 6 months.
‘Every starter struggles with estimating the turnaround of their offer versus the products’ shelf life. By balancing the assortment between fresh products and high-quality long-shelf-life products, starters can plan their production and sales better.’
Minette Smith – Callebaut’s Creative Lead Chef
Long-shelf life products help tap into new opportunities
Today, more artisan chocolatiers consider exporting their products overseas or starting an international e-commerce business. Depending on shipping times and rotation in overseas selling points, you may consider making products that still taste great when they arrive at your customer.
A great resource of inspiration to cover planned purchases and boost impulse buying
Where an offer of fine bonbons guarantees regular traffic to a shop, consumers are often charmed and seduced by side offers such as dragées, bars and spreads.
What’s more: The Chocolatier’s Kitchen offers recipes to keep up sales during the hotter season by introducing gelato and exquisite gelato-in-jar-desserts with a long shelf life. On top, the book inspires with recipes using Callebaut’s 5 colours of chocolate and an avalanche of appealing pairings, shapes and bonbon presentations.
A first book in a series of 2
The Chocolatier’s Kitchen’ is the first book in a duology supporting starting and growing businesses. A second book ‘The Chocolatier’s Shop’ is planned to release in 2023. Both books will be made available separately yet can later also be bought together in a bundled box titled ‘The Chocolatier’s Toolbox’.
