    Descriptive info: This is a long structure which runs the length of the building.. A range of fillings are chocolate coated by passing through the enrobing machine.. The enrober creates a curtain of liquid chocolate and the items to be coated are placed on a conveyor belt and run through the chocolate curtain.. Once coated in chocolate the item passes under an air curtain and over a vibrating plate to remove the excess chocolate.. They continue on through the cooling tunnel where they slowly set before reaching the 'off-load' room where they are packed out for our shop..
