We started to work in the chocolate industry in 2001. Since then, we have built up an extensive knowledge of what makes an excellent quality chocolate bar at an affordable price.
All of our bars are made using Forastero beans, which are known for their sophisticated flavour, with a high cocoa mass content, offering an intense, rich flavour. We conche our bars for a long time, so they are smooth yet delicate. Naturally, the butter we use is 100% cocoa butter and we are proud that our other high quality ingredients - coffee, tea, hazelnuts are all sourced from sustainable farms.
Finally, of course, all of this takes place in Belgium, which everyone knows is the true home of ultimate chocolate decadence !
The UTZ mission is to create a world where sustainable coffee, cocoa, tea and hazelnut farming is the norm. Sustainable farming helps farmers, workers and their families to fulfill their ambitions and contributes to safeguard the world’s resources, now and in the future. All of our bars are UTZ certified.
Since c1650, chocolate has been made in Brussels, first as a luxury drink for Kings and Queens. The first bars appeared in c1820, followed by "pralines" - bite sized, filled chocolates in 1857.
