Valentino Chocolates one of Belgium's supreme makers!
Team & story
Valentino Chocolatier has been producing Belgium’s finest chocolates for more than 30 years. In 1978, Helene De Leener and Willy Roelandts started a small chocolate company in Brussels and realized their chocolate dream.
Today, Valentino's chocolatiers are making over 60 different chocolates, with respect for tradition and a passion for taste. In addition to the all time favourites, Valentino specializes in new creations which have been recognized and prized all over the world. Each month, Valentino is presenting a new chocolate, based on an exclusive design or an original taste, using origin couvertures from Ecuador, Togo or Sao Thomé. The assortment is completed by a wide variety of chocolate specialties such as mendiants, truffles, orangettes, cerisettes, chocolate bars, sugar free pralines, liqueur pralines, Easter eggs and figurines.
The Valentino chocolates are sold in more than 60 exclusive chocolate shops within Belgium and are also exported to over 30 different countries throughout Europe, Asia and America.
With products such as “Het Lenniks Poireke” and “Het Schepdaals Brasserke”, Valentino tries to promote local products and wants to give the people from the region something to be proud of!
In 1994 Valentino moved the Chocolate Atelier from Anderlecht in the centre of Brussels to Schepdaal, 5 km outside the centre. Today, thousands of people are enjoying more than 300,000 kg of Valentino chocolates, bars and figures every year, all carefully prepared by our team of 25 people.
