Weiss puts poetry into chocolate
The best of chocolate is still to be invented: such is the state of mind of Weiss, the traditional Saint-Etienne based brand that is resolutely focused on the future. Agile and dynamic, our subsidiary combines innovation and collaboration for the benefit of its professional customers wooed by the company’s three watchwords: attention to detail, French elegance and a flash of fantasy. With its customers, Weiss thus co-develops the products to sublimate their chocolate creations : for example “Chococèpes 42%” developed hand in hand with triple-starred chef Régis Marcon: an original recipe offering intense mushroom and forest flickers of taste obtained by combining traditional technique with real splinters of forest cep mushrooms, but equally by the use of carefully selected distinctive cocoas which serve to prolong the intensity of taste of the ceps.
