Although we were passionate and enthusiastic in developing our passion for chocolate at home, it was not until we visited South America that we discovered its true nature. Forests and family farms are the home for cocoa trees covered with flowers, bearing fruits from which cocoa beans are released during the harvest prior to further processing.
A renowned chocolatier, recipes that carry our own characteristic touch and ingredients carefully selected at the place of their origin have turned Lyra chocolate into a true gem awarded not only with countless medals from professional juries, but appreciated also by you, our customers, and chocolate enthusiasts all over the world.
The more we grow, the more we learn to appreciate the importance of milestones we have passed in search of the perfect chocolate. We are writing our own story about responsibility, fairness and determination.
Under the leadership of Karol Stýblo, we are turning our dream of chocolate into a real experience. Our names are not carved into chocolate bars to achieve eternal glory. However, there are real people behind every step and decision - whether in Ivanka pri Nitre, South America or on each of the continents.
We care about everything we leave behind us. We value the nature which bears cocoa trees, the farmers who grow them, but also their children and our interns who will take over our craft one day. That is why we strive to be responsible and fair in every way possible. To put it simply, Lyra Cares.
We truly care about natural resources and the people who are involved in shaping our chocolate dream. Every step of the way, we try to leave a mark to make the world a better place, at home as well as globally.Read more
