ABOUT

Our story begins over 80 years ago, in Vigevano Italy, where our Founder, Nello Donini, was a Master Chocolatier creating scrumptious artisan delights.

In the late 1970’s, the Donini family moved to Canada and set up a factory in Belleville, Ontario producing liquid tanker loads of chocolate serving the industrial chocolate sector between Ontario and Quebec as well as Artisanal chocolate for bakeries and smaller chocolate shops.
