Rausch GmbH, a renowned manufacturer of chocolate, and QVISIONS GmbH, a Berlin-based start-up, have announced a cooperation for the digital quality inspection of raw cocoa. This will involve the use of AI-powered software that uses imagery to record the quality of raw cocoa and digitize the quality control process. QVISIONS was founded in August 2022 after the idea of using AI to check the quality of raw cocoa was born at the Hamburg Chocolate Museum. The StartUp is based in Berlin Köpenick and works closely with Rausch cocoa expert and biologist Dr. Christina Rohsius, who accompanies the project critically but with great passion. She is committed to ensuring that high quality software is brought to market. Dr. Christina Rohsius tests the software extensively to contribute her expertise and experience. The software can detect quality defects, such as insect infestation or mold, and determine the degree of fermentation via a color scheme. The collaboration aims to digitally capture the quality control process in order to analyze collected data, identify quality deterioration and trace back where it happened. "We are very pleased to be working with QVIONS on this pioneering project. Our many years of experience in cocoa cultivation and processing perfectly complement QVISION's expertise in AI technology," said Robert Rausch, fifth-generation managing director of Rausch GmbH.
