  The procedures for producing and handling chocolate in place must have adequate safety protocols. To do otherwise could have serious and potential catastrophic consequences in terms of contamination. Hence, it is important the manufacturers and food handlers to adopt good hygiene policies and procedures to improve the safety, preserve their brand and product’s reputation and most importantly, the health of consumers. This paper addresses a shift in the business culture of a Greek company, producing fresh chocolate products and confectionery, resulting from a change in their underlying strategy and food safety activities. Such a transformational change in food safety contributed in making their products a ‘Leader Concept’ in the ‘Chocolate Pastry Market’ and listed them, among the most promising companies at the confectionery business in Europe.
