Barry Callebaut procures American Almond

Chocolatier Barry Callebaut acquired American Almond two years ago, Patty Kopitas, Barry Callebaut's commercial manager told BakeryandSnacks.

She said Barry Callebaut has a strong footprint in New Jersey and has a R&D center in the region, while American Almond adds to the product portfolio.

“Acquiring American Almond fits well with the bakery category, while pairing chocolate with nuts is particularly popular,”  ​said Kopitas. “Almonds are becoming even more popular in the two sectors.”
