To find out more, here are the types of chocolate that can be used for many food products.

Couverture Chocolate

Couverture is a type of chocolate that is fancied by professionals. With a high content of cocoa butter, couverture is suitable for products that claim the best and pure taste.

Rich cocoa butter, combined with the tempering process, gives the shiny appearance, a “snap” feel when it breaks, and a soft creamy taste.

Moreover, our couverture has a high degree of flexibility, meaning that they are perfect for use as filling in chocolate molds that have sharp corners and will shrink so that they can be removed easily from the mold.

Couverture chocolate can support a variety of food products such as ice cream, bakery and pastry, to various confectionery products such as bonbon or chocolate bars. Freyabadi Indotama's couverture chocolate comes in various forms, from tablets (1-5 kg), coins, chips, and sticks. The weight, size and length of our products can be customized to the needs of the industry.
