Chocolate and vanilla bean pod

"Makers of premium chocolate since 1948..."

For three generations, the Cluizel family has evolved amidst fragrances of chocolate. With the help of skilled cacaofeviers®, confectioners and chocolate makers, the family carries on with their tradition, where everything started: in Damville, Normandy.

The Manufacture Cluizel developed a direct, sustainable relation with cocoa planters. This fair commitment is a pledge of quality. A  genuine, natural taste, this is what the self demanding chocolatier always strives for. To achieve this, cocoa beans are fermented according to a skilfully controlled technique at the planter’s premises. Then, everything is made at the Manufacture Cluizel: from the slow roasting process that perfectly reveals all the cocoa flavours, to the subtle decorations which are often handmade. This results in a range of tastes from unique soils, emphasized by traditional or innovative recipes: Michel Cluizel’s chocolates.

In August 2004, Michel Cluizel opened Manufacture Cluizel USA, the American branch, located in West Berlin, NJ with state-of-the-art temperature and humidity controlled warehousing to provide our customers with the highest quality of product and services available.
