The chocolate company Tony’s Chocolonely recently surprised their fans with the release of visualizations regarding the construction of a chocolate factory. The manufacturers plan to build their confectionery complex near Amsterdam. Originally, construction was to begin this year, but due to the economic and health crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the laying of the foundation stone has been slightly delayed. But the company hopes that they will be able to welcome the first chocolate enthusiasts at their gates within four years. According to the Timeout server, the factory should cost about one hundred million euros, which is about three billion crowns. And what awaits us inside?
The chocolate factory will consist of several buildings. There will definitely be a chocolate mill, the aforementioned waterfall, or a roller coaster. Like little Karlík, you will be able to learn plenty of interesting information about the process of chocolate production during your visit. And you'll be able to buy a number of souvenirs in a variety of shops or eat in a good restaurant.
If everything goes according to plan, the company hopes to be able to offer up to six hundred jobs and expects the factory to be visited by over five hundred thousand customers with a sweet tooth. Whatever your relationship to confectionery may be, you definitely don't have to worry about turning into a giant blueberry or bumping into a host of Oompa-Loompas during your visit. Although... Who knows, the plans may yet change.
Tony's Chocolonely was founded in 2005 and its primary goal is to facilitate the end of slavery on cocoa farms. So, what do you think? Would you like to take a trip to such a factory, or do you prefer good old sausages and pork rinds?
