Charitable chocolate company finds sweet success

Endangered  Species ChocolateTM does not only measure success by dollar signs. As evidenced  by its name, the premium chocolate company headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, donates  10 percent of its net profits to species and habitat conservation efforts. In addition,  the company carefully  sources only the highest  quality  organic and all-natural ingredients from farmers  that practice sustainable farming.  As a result, Endangered  Species prides  itself  on being a successful business that puts fewer  chemicals  into  the earth, protects rainforests and provides  solid jobs.

 

The result  is delicious and ethically-produced chocolate that has quickly  grown in popularity and allowed  the company to experience tremendous growth. Recently, more and more consumers were craving its 0.35-ounce  Organic Chocolate Squares, known  as Chimp Mints  and Bug Bites, to the point  where demand  began outpacing production. Endangered  Species reached out to its partner Bosch Packaging Technology  for an automated solution that more than tripled output.

 

Partners in packaging
Since its humble  beginnings in 1993, Endangered  Species has relied  on Bosch’s Doboy Stratus, an entry level and compact horizontal flow wrapper, to package its beloved  Chimp Mints  and Bug Bites. Since going national  in 2005, the company has more than tripled in size. To meet increasing demand,  Endangered  Species worked closely with  its local Bosch agent Keith Goodhart of RPMI Packaging Inc., and decided  to upgrade  to Bosch’s Pack 401 horizontal flow wrapper integrated with a Pack Feeder 4 six belt feeder,  a system capable of automated product transfer and simplified cleaning and maintenance.

 

As a result,  the automated solution accelerated production from 120 pieces per minute  to 400 pieces per minute, with the potential for output levels up to 550 products per minute.  “The Pack 401 wraps our products faster  than we can currently produce  them,” says Bryan Fuller, director of operations, Endangered Species. “This positions us for our anticipated growth over the next few years.”
