Why the Melter V20

Modular melter

The V20 is the result of months of R&D after consultations and problem-solving with multinationals and co-manufacturers. The outcome is a more powerful, flexible melter, enabling our customers to increase production, lower costs, and be more agile.

30 years of melting innovation

After 30 years of collaboration with world-leading co-manufacturers, our real-world knowledge and feedback have helped us redefine what a commercial chocolate melter should deliver.
