Barry Callebaut. The highest standards - also in hygiene
"NGI is a very interesting partner for us since their innovation within hygienic design allows us as a brand owner to specify hygienic EHEDG certified levelling systems, thereby assuring that NGI will assist the OEM in implementing the most hygienic
possible systems to our final gain. We will continuously keep track of the current and new NGI hygienic products, and we are sure we have found a partner that can assist us and our machine builders with very little effort from our side to our final gain.”

Mechanical engineer & Project manager,
As a major part of the world’s chocolate food chain, Barry Callebaut wants to secure the highest standards within hygiene. After they started using hygienic feet from NGI in their factories in Belgium and United Kingdom they saw the value of implementing these feet at the specifications stage when they ordered new machines from their machine builders. Therefore, Barry Callebaut wanted to implement NGI components in their technical specifications.
NGI helped Barry Callebaut develop and implement their standard for production equipment. NGI has been in close contact with Barry Callebaut during the process and NGI have furthermore helped the machine builders of Barry Callebaut with the implementation. Throughout the solution NGI and Barry Callebaut has focused on all parts of the machine supply chain, ensuring that both Barry Callebaut and the advisers and suppliers all benefit from the new standards.
The new standard is implemented at Barry Callebaut and the suppliers have started using the standards. One of these suppliers is DESMI and they have confirmed that both the standards and the NGI hygienic feet are easy to work with.
The Barry Callebaut Group is the world's leading manufacturer of high-quality chocolate and cocoa products. We are the reference for innovation in the industry providing a compehensive range of services in the fields of product development, processing, training and marketing.
