“This chocolate drink has all the flavour and colour of ruby chocolate and the power dissolves very easily in any type of milk, in hot or cold applications.
“Ruby chocolate drink powder will help us to unlock the beverage category for Horeca customers.”
The Dutch company introduced ruby chocolate in 2017 and describes the product as having a “smooth berry sweetness.”
Van Houten has been owned by the Barry Callebaut Group since 1998.
