A note from Subhashini Rajasekaran-

I am going to start a venture for sustainable socially-conscious growth of cocoa and chocolate products in india.

I have even found access to 5 acres of land in the Tamil Nadu / Kerala belt where the climate is suitable that will also allow the engagement of the youth in the village community in the development.

Please introduce yourself in the comments section and feel free to start discussions about any topic related to cacao and chocolate in India.

hi can any one help me on this.I made soft centered chocolates in a polycarbonate mould but around 50% of them cracked while taking them out of the mould any ideas as to where i could be going wrong

Comment by Nadia on June 8, 2013 at 10:59am

hi balpreet singh .Custom mould i think would be out of my bracket.but if the printer and edible ink are like one time investment with good quality of print on chocolates i wouldnt mind doing this investment.Could u help me as to where i can find this i am situated in mumbai.

Comment by Balpreet Singh on June 7, 2013 at 9:56pm
Hi nadia. Edible ink and printers are available in india but they are expensive around 25000/- and yes plastic moulds are available with messages already printed.
For custom moulds the minimum rate is around 5K - 18K depending on the material used.
Comment by Sanjay Sett on June 7, 2013 at 2:56pm

@Nadia: The pleasure is mine. Could you please give me some to evaluate the Indian market and what is available? One option is for ordering customized molds, however, they are quite expensive. If you want, I can inquire the prices. However, you'll have to provide me with some chocolates as well. ;-)

Comment by Nadia on June 7, 2013 at 2:03pm

Thanks mr sett for ur time . I tried the pre-printed sheets but one theny didnt transfer well on the chocolates i mean the print where grainy and the other think i keep getting request for chocolates with not just printed messages like happy birthday or anniversary but people want it more customised like the birthdate on the chocolates or their names how do i go about doing that?

and thanks once again for ur reply

Comment by Sanjay Sett on June 7, 2013 at 1:33pm

Hi Nadia, I am not sure whether special printers required for the task are available on the local market. However, you can purchase ready-to-use messages. Edible inks are available in India, but they are extremely costly. If required, please befriend me (optional) and I'll help you.

Cheers,

Sanjay
