"TO LOVE CHOCOLATE IS THE BEGINNING OF A LIFELONG RELATIONSHIP."
EXPLORE THE WORLD OF AALST CHOCOLATE
Aalst Chocolate is part of a chocolate tradition that stretches back centuries to the jungles of Central and South America. For centuries, cocoa was grown and consumed as a beverage exclusively by the civilisations of this region until the Spanish introduced cocoa to Europe in the 16th century, where it became a popular drink.
By the late 19th century, technological innovations such as the press and conche emerged to allow the production of high quality chocolate and chocolate confectionery. Today, Aalst Chocolate is proud to continue this journey and invites you to join us in discovering the beauty and history of this magical crop.
