Dedicated to craft remarkable chocolate.

Chapter Nº1

Remarkable since 1845

Our great-great-great-grandfather and patissier Adolphe Meurisse was a pioneer as he founded the first Belgian chocolate factory in 1845 in Antwerp at a time when chocolate was still a rare delicacy. Meurisse was awarded several degrees of honour at the Exposition International d’Anvers at the end of the 19th century and at the World Expo in Brussels at the beginning of the 20th century. Meurisse is the oldest Belgian chocolate and has always put progress at the core of its endeavours.

Chapter Nº2

Iconic chocolate

Meurisse created many famous chocolate brands before the first world war, which were immensely popular throughout the 20t century: many of us still remember the first chocolate bar in Belgium launched in 1904. Others indulged endlessly in a fondant chocolate with praline filling, invented in 1954.

Chapter Nº3

New generation

Today, six generations down the line, we are bringing back the eponymous Meurisse brand, with respect to its rich heritage, simultaneously embracing the future in line with Meurisse’s progressive and innovative DNA. 

Chapter Nº4

State of the art chocolate

As the oldest Belgian chocolate, we once again call on Belgian’s craftsmanship using single origin chocolate and carefully sourced ingredients from certified organic agriculture.

Chapter Nº5

Our commitments for the future of chocolate

We are determined to create remarkable chocolate, in striving to create a positive social and environmental impact for all Meurisse stakeholders.
