First ever chocolate printer to go on sale after Easter
The first ever chocolate printer would go on sale after Easter, as reported by researchers at the University of Exeter. The research team headed by Dr Liang Hao came up with a prototype chocolate printer last year, which they claim to have perfected. And now to make it commercial, Hao has setup a company called Choc Edge to commercialize the device.
"We've improved and simplified the machine, so now it is really easy to use," said Dr Hao.
"You just need to melt some chocolate, fill a syringe that is stored in the printer, and get creative printing your chocolate."
Chocolate lovers around the world can now print their own custom-made sweets, layer by layer, courtesy the chocolate printer.
Retailers have shown a great interest in the printer. Thorntons - the UK's largest specialist retailer and manufacturer of chocolate and confectionery goods is one of them.
