For almost two centuries, Switzerland’s oldest chocolate manufacturer has been producing its incomparable chocolate at Maison CAILLER in the picturesque Gruyère region. This family business from western Switzerland carefully monitors every step of the production process, from the cocoa bean to the carefully packaged chocolate. The quality of CAILLER chocolate is paramount, which is why only natural and high-quality ingredients are used.
A close partnership with around 50 farmers from the region makes it possible to source the fresh milk for CAILLER chocolate from happy cows grazing in the pastures around Broc. In addition, all the cocoa beans used at Maison CAILLER come from the Nestlé Cocoa Plan, a program for sustainable cocoa production. These beans are grown and harvested according to the highest quality standards.
CAILLER chocolate carries the UTZ certificate, which means that it meets the strict requirements of the UTZ program for sustainable cultivation and social responsibility. Another outstanding feature is that the chocolate contains no palm oil, which contributes to a more responsible and environmentally friendly product.
