Preactor APS drives the digitalization of industrial processes at Chocolates Valor by streamlining production planning

A leader in chocolates for more than a century

Founded in 1881, Chocolates Valor S.A. produces high-quality chocolate bars, chocolates and snacks. It is a leader in the domestic market for sugar-free chocolate bars, bars with a high content of cocoa and soluble products. The company is renowned throughout Spain, but its products
are distributed in more than 60 countries. Besides using only top-quality raw ingredients, the company has started the process called “From Bean to Bar,” selecting the raw materials at their sources and processing them at its plants in Spain from the very start: roasting and grinding, blending and mixing, refining and finally molding, to assure the traceability of cocoa from its origin until it is transformed into a bar, without using pre-processed cocoa paste.

Chocolates Valor operates two modern production sites which together occupy more than 65,000 square feet and produce almost 21,000 tons of chocolate yearly. The company also has its own network of chocolate shops, with more than 33 points of sale throughout Spain. The core competitive advantage of Chocolates Valor is its drive to keep alive its longstanding chocolate tradition with high-quality products, accompanied by a manufacturing strategy focused on achieving excellence.

Digitalizing the supply chain from cocoa beans to chocolate bars

For Chocolates Valor, digitalizing the company is essential, as it means obtaining readily available and more accurate information, which simplifies decision making and prioritizing actions.
