From sorting, to roasting, to cracking, all the way to moulding, the entire BTB process happens inside one facility with one person or a small group of people. The efficiency of the system even includes the farms where the BTB companies get their beans from. It can be assumed that such a tight system makes it easy to produce chocolate that is said to rival with any...
