The Chocolaterie de Gruyères: a company passionate about the art of chocolate

In the heart of the Gruyère region, a small family company specialises in turning cacao into an artisanal, traditional product that is truly luscious and luxurious: chocolate.

The Chocolaterie de Gruyères, managed by Richard Uldry, is a both a chocolate factory and a training company, as it counts two apprentices among its staff. Its aim is to promote the continuity of the craft by passing on and sharing the love and passion for taking a specific product, such as a cocoa bean, and turning it into something that tastes sublime.

With 30 years of experience as a chocolatier under his belt, Richard Uldry welcomes you into his world to share his passion. What does he like most about being a chocolatier? The creativity the job offers, the opportunity to discover new products and the relationships he enjoys with the regional producers from whom he sources his ingredients.

In fact, in buying chocolate and other products from the Chocolaterie de Gruyères, you can be sure that they are artisanal products made from regional ingredients. The company tries, wherever possible, to source its cacao, hazelnuts and almonds

from niche markets.

Our flagship products

The Chocolaterie de Gruyères has several specialities. In the chocolate range, its flagship product is “bean to bar” dark and milk chocolate. “Bean to bar” means the company controls every step of the chocolate making process, from A to Z. Because the production process is complex and requires the use of a number of machines, it is not that common in Switzerland.

The range also includes delicious pralines and other chocolates made with regional products, such as double cream, milk from Fribourg, cherries from Cheseaux-Noréaz and Swiss kirsch.

We also offer chocolate beer and a whole range of salted chocolate products. In addition, starting this summer, you’ll be able to sample a chocolate vinegar.
