Frederic Blondeel chocolates are handcrafted freshly in Belgium every day. From bean to bar, our chocolate masters monitor every step of chocolate making and use only on the finest ingredients around the world as we strive for a genuine, natural taste. For example, the finest varieties of hazelnuts are sourced from Piedmont, sea salt are from the coast of France, Vanilla from Madagascar, Coffee from Guatemala. We only use cocoa beans from best producers in Madagascar, Ghana, Tanzania, Costa Rica, Peru, Venezuela, and Vietnam as well. After cocoa beans are fermented naturally, they are slow roasted perfectly to reveal all of the cocoa flavors, which is a challenging and complicated process. In fact, Frederic Blondeel is one of the few chocolate brands that roast its own cocoa beans; we are a true bean-to-bar chocolatier!
