Caffarel - Italy's Unique Tradition and Innovation in the World of Premium Chocolate
Caffarel, a local Italian chocolate brand, has been part of the Lindt & Sprüngli Group since 1998. The acquisition brought a unique know-how in the world of chocolate, and combined two absolute excellences in chocolate production.
Paul Caffarel put Turin on the map of the world’s famous chocolate capitals in 1826, at a time when chocolate was still rare and exotic in Europe. He created one of the most memorable Italian specialties, the GIANDUIOTTO by carefully mixing and blending together cocoa powder, sugar and Piedmont’s famous “round and gentle” variety of hazelnuts, known for their fine, distinctive flavor. With this fragrant mixture made into a smooth paste, Caffarel started the production of chocolates that were special in every respect. His artisanal expertise and careful selection of high-quality ingredients created an intense and velvety soft chocolate delicacy which did not exist before. He turned Caffarel into Italy’s symbol for traditional chocolate expertise and innovation.
Today, Caffarel is appreciated in Italy and worldwide for its unquestionable good quality, the meticulous attention to detail and the extraordinary packaging.
