Using all types of colors, IBC nevertheless specializes in Cocoart, a unique e-number free coloring based on cocoa powder to achieve shades from beige and red to deep black.

How does it work?

Transfers work for all kind of sweet creations. In this case, the sheet is applied in an industrial setting on a chocolate-coated biscuit. The transfer is applied when the chocolate is still melted.

As the chocolate cools, hardens and crystallizes, the design will transfer from the transfer sheet onto the chocolate.

Transfers also work perfectly in confectionery, with magnetic molds for example.
