His factory, Chocolaterie Excellence, has become the embassy of successful fine chocolate creations, such as the marbled chocolate bars and even the truffeline.

This modern and high-performing chocolate factory, located in Marssac-sur-Tarn, is at the cuttind edge of chocolate creation, and spreads the “chocolate way of life” through a network of 60 stores.
