Hello,

Most carriers will transport chocolates but you must package them in such a way that they will survive any rough handlings.   Depending on the volume, you can use the different boxes provided by the carrier.  Fedex (Air21), DHL and LBC usually takes them, but will insist that you put them in resilient packaging.

Cheers!

Hindi ako sure kung makakarating in good form ang chocolates.  Masyadong mainit ang panahon natin.  Hindi siya totally matutunaw pero I'm sure lalambot yan.  I haven't tried sending to provinces pero dito palang sa Manila ingat na ingat ako pag nag d-deliver ako dati ng chocolates.  Lalo na yong molded chocolates. 

Dapat siguro ang packaging mo tulad nong mga imported na pati plastic holder meron mga shape.  Aside pa sa box.

Hello,

You can add more sugar to your chocolate or modified starch so that you can increase the dissolved solid content.  Generally, the more dissolved solids you have in chocolate, the higher the melting point up to a certain limit.

Kung maramihan na talaga ang production mo puede ka ng magpasadya ng sarili mong packaging.  Lowest ata na requirement 1000 pcs.  Try to contact yong mga nasa packaging business dito sa forum. Baka may idea pa sila on transporting of chocolates.

Hello,

Moisture is coming from the condensation of air around the chocolate, much like the water condensing from a cold glass of water.  This is normal, but the chocolate has to be handled with minimum temperature changes to protect the quality and the flavors.

Hindi mo lang siguro napapansin yon noon dahil malamig ang panahon.  Ngayon kasi iba ang weather natin kaya lumalabas kagad ang moisture.  Natural yon kasi galing sa ref.  Medyo patuyuin mo bago mo isara ang kahon or bago mo i-package.
