Specific
Product Focus

We have been focusing on concept development since 2005. Working closely together with our partners, we look for ways to produce the best possible truffle for “their market place”. We establish long lasting business relationships with our partners in the private label sector, understanding our partner needs and working together with them to create their very own, unique chocolate truffle, tailor-made to the tastes of their local consumer.

Our creativity and our flexibility enable us to provide diversity. Our efficiency allows us to be competitive.

We offer a wide variety of flavours and - subject to minimum quantities – even offer alternatives to flaking or dusting.

Even though our truffles are industrially produced and packed, they retain an artisanal look. Each truffle has a distinctive, hand-made appearance.

Good to know

Chocolate truffles are sensitive to temperature, especially the cocoa dusted varieties. Transport needs to be temperature controlled. The ideal temperature is between 12° and 18° C. Storage conditions require a stable temperature at all times. Chocolate truffles should not be exposed to direct sunlight and should be kept preferably in a cool and dry place. Shelf life is 12 months from production.

Origins

In order to fully understand the superiority of Belgian Chocolate, we have to go back a long way in history. Chocolate arrived in Europe after Christoffel Columbus’ conquests and slowly, over time, it developed into the fine chocolate we know today. Originally, “chocolate like” products in Europe were manufactured with cocoa beans originating from South-America. Later on, Europe (France, England and Germany) started up cocoa plantations in Africa. This led to these countries manufacturing their chocolate with just one specific type of cocoa bean from just one specific origin. This evolution heavily influenced the flavour and aroma of the chocolate produced. In essence, each country had its own, very specific chocolate taste.

Origins

Their consumers became so accustomed to the specific chocolate taste that even today’s consumers are still influenced by these historical developments. A few examples: The cocoa beans used by the French were very bitter - French chocolate is still known today for being very bitter, independently from the % of cocoa solids in the chocolate. The German chocolate has always been known to be extra sweet.

There was of course one special exception to this rule: Belgium! Belgium purchased cocoa beans from its neighbouring countries France, Germany and United Kingdom. This had a very interesting effect on the taste of the Belgian chocolate. Due to the mix of cocoa beans from different origins, the chocolate manufactured in Belgium did not have this singular, monotonous tast

When compared to the chocolate from other chocolate producing countries, in contrast, the Belgian chocolate was very rich in flavours and aromas. That is the full bodied chocolate taste Belgian consumers grew accustomed to, the same rich taste they still appreciate so much today. And as we all know, the love of Belgian chocolate is not limited to the Belgians, it is a worldwide phenomenon!

Meroso Foods has elaborated on this fine Belgian tradition and selected chocolate types made from a mix of cocoa origins. By adapting the mixes to the yearly variations in taste of the cocoa beans, we succeed in keeping a constant flavour throughout the years. Our special mix of cocoa beans makes for a rich pallet of flavours and aromas just waiting to be savoured in the delicious chocolate truffles made by Meroso Foods.
