Have you ever felt that sweet and inspiring sensation when unboring chocolate reaches your buds, right after you take the first bite? If you’re reading this, it probably means yes. And surely you know it’s one of a kind. Now multiply that with an unlimited choice of ingredients, passion for authenticity and the sweetest range of Heidi chocolate and there you have it: the legacy that we started over 23 years ago.

It was the year 1994 when Juerg Laederach, passionate Swiss Chocolatier and Entrepreneur set sails on a journey of exploration, in order to bring new opportunities to people here and to teach them the secret of the Swiss Art of Making Chocolate.

Inspired by the famous little girl which, with her natural and innocent attitude, made people see the positive things in life, Juerg founded Heidi and its spirit. One that continues to inspire people to walk on the bright side of life through the finesse and crafted compositions of Heidi Chocolate.

With passion, craftsmanship and respect for individuality leading our way, soon the chocolatier boutique developed into a global Atelier du Chocolat, exporting to over 60 countries throughout all continents.
