Our undisputed technological leadership has made us the number one supplier of solutions and machinery to the worldwide cocoa and chocolate industry.
Maran Atha advantages for the industry
You need to ensure you have clean beans free from impurities to create the best cocoa liquor. We offer a broad range of technologies to separate undesirable elements from your raw materials and to thoroughly clean your beans, ready for debacterization.
Roasting plays a key role in defining your flavor profile. We can offer you a range of continuous or batch roasters that give you independent temperature zone control for consistent output. Low in maintenance and easy to clean.
Ensuring food safety
You need to debacterize your beans without adversely affecting flavor. Our solutions have been specially designed to kill bacteria with high steam pressure and loosen the shell from the nibs.
Crushing and winnowing
Crushing and winnowing can significantly affect your yield. Our sophisticated two-stage crushing process, with a choice of screening levels and built-in aspiration, can be adjusted to meet the precise needs of your different bean origins.
Just the right consistency
Grinding is the final step to the perfect cocoa liquor or powder. Our flexible grinding technology produces consistent high-quality liquor. Downtimes are low, thanks to the durability and short maintenance and cleaning times.
The mix of key ingredients needs to be just right to ensure product consistency and to safeguard your most expensive materials. Our automated batch dosing continuously learns and self-adjusts the dosing weight from batch to batch to return the highest possible dosing accuracy and repeatability.
Creating a homogenous mass
It is essential that all of your ingredients and inclusions are uniformly mixed before refining. Our shearing and kneading technology homogenizes your liquid and dry components, while releasing entrapped/immobilized fat to enhance flavors.
Just the right particle size
To get the right particle size, we recommend a two-stage refining solution. Our pre-refining calibrates your sugar to provide perfect and consistently high plasticity. Our final five-roller refiner then grinds and aromatizes the sugar to meet your desired fineness.
Conching allows you to control the flavor profile, mouthfeel and flow characteristics for your bar or tablets. Our market-leading conching process develops the chocolate flavor while removing undesirable volatile substances and moisture in a repeatable, accurate process.
