Ahold owned Dutch grocer Albert Heijn has begun offering the ultimate in private brand personalization chocolate 3D printed cake decorations on cakes.
The decorations are created using Doodle3D which allows customers design their own unique decorations. The easy to use sketching tool then sends the designs to a byFlow portable 3D printer. The byFlow is a truly portable 3D printer is so compact it folds up into a briefcase. Through easy-to-exchange alternative extruders, it can 3D print with several different types of paste materials, including, of course, molten chocolate.
If the pilot proves successful – as it has been in the first days – it will be extended to the other 30 supermarkets of the Dutch chain.
