Our story
At the beginning, there are only two possibilities. Either it comes out right or it does not. We started with Does Not.

In 2008 we started with importing Belgian pralines to Slovakia. We failed. Then, we launched the production of our own hot chocolate made with real chocolate. We succeeded. It became really popular and not before long we got an idea to make more chocolate products. Small chocolate tablets with a personalized wrapping to be served with a cup of coffee. Now, what comes next?

2009 was a breakpoint. We met Colombian Casa Luker, they invited us to their plantations in South America and we became business partners. It was like rousing from dreams, tomatoes are not grown in supermarket but in the fields. Suddenly we could experience the world of top quality chocolate, we had never tried before. We learned that making quality chocolate means to know each farmer, each tree, each detail; it means to understand each stage of cocoa's journey and give it enough time.
Our Team
Each stage in chocolate making could be named after one of us. That's what it's all about. To have the real people behind chocolate. Come and meet our team.
Local farmers in South America, the Shuar in Equador, almond farmers in Sicily. Our partners are spread all over the world. Then there are these more than 20 people in Ivanka pri Nitre who are behind our final chocolate. We create our chocolate under Karol Styblo's wing, who passed Barry Callebaut chocolate academy in Belgium, worked at plantations in Colombia, was trained by chocolatier Emmanuel Hamon in France and gained a title of Fino de Aroma Master Chef Chocolatier. He gets ideas, we process them.

Making quality chocolate means being interested in the whole industry. On the one hand, to support farmers but also to educate students.

Responsible Business

Without us, the surroundings would not change much. But if there was no environment, we probably would not exist. That's why we try to do business responsibly.

We always want to look at people in the eye. That's why we care about the proper cultivation of cocoa at the plantations as well as the rigorous production process.
