The company JAF Inox founded in 2008, originated from the Sartori & Pedroso Food Company, a family owned business and manufacturer of gourmet chocolate. The processing equipment for the production of gourmet chocolate was developed and engineered in-house and was unique in the Brazilian market. After this equipment became very popular among cocoa- and chocolate producers in Brazil, the decision was made to change focus from the production of gourmet chocolate to the manufacturing of small scale and sophisticated processing equipment. JAF Inox can supply complete turnkey chocolate production systems from bean to bar, bean cleaning, roasting, winnowing, and grinding to 5 roll refining, conching, tempering, moulding and enrobing.
