Still today the one-shot technology has been rather uncared by the technical literature. Only sparse information and benchmarks about the practical implementation are available.
Together we will unfold the hidden secrets of the one-shot technology, and provide you with knowledge how you can optimize your production.
In small dedicated groups, you will learn the basics and many secrets about the one-shot technology. Often overlooked but a crucial factor, we will give you insights into the correct pre-crystallization of the chocolate and fillings. Furthermore, you will learn the best way of cooling your products. You will learn everything there is to know about achieving the best result on the Aasted Nilshot one-shot machine accompanied by experts and prominent guest speakers in Aasted Technology Center.
Learn how to create one-shot chocolates with up to 4 different colors. You will create beautiful and delicious one-shot chocolates and discover new methods on how to be more creative than ever before.
During this process you can even bring your own filling and become creative with the Nilshot and Aasteds expert guidance.
Piped one-shot opens the creativity for every chocolate master. With piped one-shot you generally use ganaches or butter ganaches. We will create different piped one-shot for you to learn and be inspired with.
This method emphasizes having full control of the temperature of the filling – which you will learn to master.

Head of Innovation, Quality & Technology from the fine chocolate manufacturer Max Felchlin AG in Switzerland. His knowledge incorporates diverse areas of semi-finished and finished products, development, quality, sales and acquisitions. He started his food industry career 40 years ago.
In the 90ies he began working with chocolate in cooperation with an international chocolate company, when he developed products for the Japanese brand “Holios” in Australia. He ensured that the strict Japanese quality requirements were implemented. After returning to Switzerland, he continued developing products and managing quality at Hans Kaspar AG. Max Felchin AG then asked him to work for them 18 years ago.
Sepp believes in supporting cocoa farmers at the origin and as such has provided his technical assistance to a project in Granada that has just begun to develop their own cocoa mass from Granada cocoa beans. His goal is the continued development of the best possible taste experience, from every bean while maintaining quality and sustainability.
