Our capabilities

We love any challenge around chocolate

HERZA stands for the production of quality chocolate. We are one of the few chocolate manufacturers who make their own chocolate. This allows us to control the entire process and to ensure that our products contain only carefully inspected, high-quality ingredients. At the same time we can offer our customers tailor-made solutions, from the selection of the cocoa variety to the formulation of the end product to the creation of new, customer-specific specialities.

Customers don’t just benefit from our long-standing experience and passion for chocolate. The HERZA philosophy also means high flexibility and fast reaction. Our employees are constantly searching for new shapes and possibilities in chocolate production. Next to our existing good-tasting recipes, we constantly bring new developments to market. By doing so we continually enhance the flavour of our chocolates and create new buying incentives for consumers. And we are always open to individual customer wishes.
