Mention the name “Belgium” and many people from different parts of the world will think “chocolate”. At Belcolade, we take great pride in being a part of the rich tradition and heritage that has earned Belgian chocolate this extraordinary reputation. We set ourselves exceedingly high quality standards and offer a great added value, through innovation. For this reason, all our chocolate is—and always has been—produced in our factory in Erembodegem, Belgium.
At the heart of Belcolade chocolate is its unrivalled taste. An experience that comes from careful selection of the best quality cocoa beans from around the globe. To guarantee the quality standards that are in keeping with our reputation and today’s market, we only use 100% butter and 100% natural vanilla in our products. Our Belcolade chocolate is made according to the traditional Belgian process of mixing, grinding, conching and tempering, a process that we have perfected with decades of experience to obtain the unique taste of Belcolade Chocolate.
Puratos offers a uniquely rich palette of flavours, suitable for myriad applications. We also develop specific flavours tailored to your individual requirements.
The Belcolades winning range of dark, milk and white chocolates offers a taste pallet as broad and complex as each specific application. For those looking for a more distinctive taste profile, Belcolade Origins captures the unique bouquet of specific cocoa-growing regions. We also offer a certified sustainable range. With our Belgian chocolate and chocolate ingredients range, we try to inspire food professionals around the world to adapt traditional recipes and discover innovative applications in pastry and chocolate by combining Belcolade with new and exciting flavours.
At our Chocolate Centers, Puratos experts research the latest trends in chocolate production while also developing new concepts, products, processes and technologies.
Cacao-Trace is Puratos’ sustainable cocoa programme. It has two aims: empower farmers to produce better quality beans and ensure that cocoa farming remains an attractive business in the future.
