About Belgium Chocolate Couvertures

Belgium boasts a rich heritage in chocolate production, with a legacy that spans centuries. The country is home to numerous large-scale chocolate manufacturers that capitalize on economies of scale, allowing for efficient production and competitive pricing. These companies produce chocolate with a focus on accessibility and widespread appeal.

One of the distinguishing features of Belgian chocolate is its lower cocoa content compared to its French counterparts. The traditional recipes and methods employed by Belgian chocolatiers often incorporate more sugar to achieve their characteristic taste and texture. This approach results in chocolates that are indulgent, with a focus on sweetness and accessibility. 


Summer Shipping: 

At above 26°C, cocoa butter in chocolate products may start melting, and recrystallize as white streaks or marks on the chocolate's surface.  This phenomenon is called 'fat bloom'.  While it may not have the perfect appearance, bloomed chocolates are safe to eat and use in recipes.

During summer months when the temperature is relatively warm, we advise adding cold packaging to your shipment in order to minimize the risk of melting.  While we are careful and diligent in maintaining the temperature of your package, we unfortunately cannot guarantee the products in the cold packaging will not be affected by unusually warm weather and irregular transit time.
