An oversized chocolate bar — we've dubbed them tablets — showcasing Meurisse's dark chocolate with dangling zesty notes that bath us in the shadow of a lush orange tree.
Patissier Adolphe Meurisse 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 honor 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. Meurisse went on to create many famous chocolate brands before the first world war, which were immensely popular throughout the 20th century; others indulged endlessly in a fondant chocolate with praline filling, invented in 1954.
Today, six generations down the line, the eponymous Meurisse brand is back with respect to its rich heritage, while simultaneously embracing the future in line with Meurisse’s progressive and innovative DNA.
