Cargill to host two upcoming workshops for aspiring chocolatiers

Cargill, owner of Wilbur chocolate and Peter's chocolate, announced it will offer the fifth and sixth sessions of The Chocolatier's Workshop in March and May of 2010. The fifth session will take place March 22-24 and the sixth session will occur May 3-5. Both sessions will be held in Lititz, Pa. More than 30 participants have already successfully completed the three-day workshop.

The Chocolatier's Workshop is an interactive, three-day seminar that focuses on opening and operating a confectionery business. The workshop consists of two days in a classroom setting where participants will learn the fundamentals of starting a chocolate business such as selecting a site location, determining the proper product mix, purchasing the correct equipment, marketing, advertising, the legal and operational landscape of business and the type of professionals who can help navigate it, and understanding an owner's rights and responsibilities.

The third day is spent in the Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate research and development laboratory where participants will get a hands-on candy-making and tempering session with Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate's expert instructors.

The Chocolatier's Workshop is limited to 10 participants who meet the workshop qualifications. Please contact Amanda Frey at 717-626-3246 or e-mail chocolate@cargill.com to register or for more information.
