Last Monday, December 10, in the Werl district of Westönnen Germany, tons of melted chocolate leaked from the storage tank of DreiMeister factory and covered the street.
The fire department was called to help clean the streets of the “chocolate river.” It took them about two hours to finish since the chilly weather instantly solidified the chocolate.
In an interview with Soester Anzeiger, company boss Markus Luckey explained that they have stopped production since the incident happened. But after a couple of days, the business resumed.
“It was just a small thing. There is no major damage,” Luckey affirms.
Sure, production problems are inevitable and sometimes, it becomes a part of the process that you’ll have to deal with it and implement a solution. After all, mistakes happen all the time, and it’s just how you make the problem “less problematic.”
