chocolate bars

Since 2010 we have been producing luxury handcrafted truffles, pralines and authentic chocolate bars, the Swiss way in Franschoek and Paarl, South Africa. We believe that chocolates should not contain any preservatives, or filling ingredients intened to expand the volume, therefore we rely on recipes inherited from generations of Swiss chocolatiers. Inorder to keep our clientelle highly satisfied, we source only the freshest, finest pure authentic ingredients.

The cocoa bean grows in Africa and we believe the whole process should be done in Africa to minimize the carbon foot print.
