Cocoa and chocolate products producer Barry Callebaut recently signed a new lease to nearly double the size of its Eddystone, PA cocoa powders and cocoa liquor manufacturing plant, several local news organizations reported this week. 

The firm struck a deal with the building’s owner, Novaya Foxfield Industrial LLC, to add 186,000 sq ft to its current footprint of 209,000 sq ft. The property is located near the company’s R&D center in Eddystone, according to coverage by PerishableNews.com. 

“Doubling our Eddystone, PA factory footprint is an important step in our cocoa growth journey,” Hugo van der Goes, vice president of Cocoa in North America at Barry Callebaut, told GlobeSt.com. “The additional space will enable us to add manufacturing lines for cocoa products and to grow our domestically-produced line of powder and butter.” 

Barry Callebaut operates 50 production facilities across the globe. The Swiss firm established a presence in Eddystone when it acquired a plant there from Food Processing International Inc. in 2007.
