The hazelnut has given its delicate soul to chocolate, resulting in the finest of praline delicacies. Faithful to its policy of having control over its raw materials, since 2000, the group has acquired 286 hectares of hazel trees and nurseries in southwestern France.
Alongside Ecuadorian cocoa beans, Guyenne’s nurseries and hazelnuts (from a recognized terroir) are makin their own contribution to the excellence of the group’s chocolates.
Soon, a doubling of the surface area, combined with the latest cultivation methods, will make it possible to strengthen this brand of instantly edible hazelnut, enhancing the intensity of a delicious chocolate.
