Belgium’s new La Maim Factory makes high-tech holiday treats using 3-D printing.
The shop can produce anything from beer bottles to custom logos to freeform sculptures, all manufactured 0.2 millimeters at a time.
Founder Gaetan Richard took an idea developed in Liège University’s Smart Gastronomy Lab and started this company four months ago.
Along with Easter-themed offerings he produces promotional pieces for a local brewery and a luxury hotel.
Each chocolate beer bottle takes nearly three hours to produce.
Stretched out, the chocolate in one of them would form a line a sixteenth of an inch wide and 80 feet long.
And the name? “Miam” means yum in French—an apt choice to be sure.
