Sales of hot chocolate are on the rise, while those of tea and coffee are in decline, according to the Maude Roxby Annual Food Service Report (December 2010).
While this presents a key opportunity for out-of-home operators, a major barrier to success is posed by consumer dissatisfaction with the way chocolate beverages are sometimes served.
To overcome these inconsistencies, Cadbury has designed a chocolate powder dosing unit that will allow caterers to serve up consistent, quality brews of its hot chocolate time after time.
The Cadbury- and Fairtrade-branded machine releases the right amount of powder for the cup size and the beverage being prepared. It reduces wastage and spillage and allows operators to judge exactly how many cups they will get from each tub of powder.
The easy-to-clean unit measures just 576.6mm (H) x 200mm (W) x 250mm (D) with a footprint little bigger than a 2kg tub of hot chocolate. It can hold 2kg of powder, which translates into 83 servings of Cadbury Drinking Chocolate or 47 servings of Cadbury Instant Chocolate.

The 10 winners will also each receive a 2kg tub of Cadbury Hot Chocolate powder.
