Chocolaterie A. Morin

A truly French chocolate maker, the Morin family have been making hand-crafted bean-to-bar chocolate in their workshop in Donzère for over 130 years.

The prestigious Morin family have been making chocolate in France since 1884 and the company is now run by Franck Morin.  In 1958 Franck’s grand-father, André, opened a chocolate factory and started to make bars. Morin source their cocoa beans from a range of places around the world, including Trinidad and Tobago, Ecuador, São Tomé and Principé, Madagascar, Venezuela and Jamaica. They even have some bars made out of Burmese beans!

They then roast, ground and conch the beans in their workshop in the Southeastern French town of Donzère. Morin use their experience and expertise to carefully control every stage of production.  What’s more, they grow almonds, hazelnuts and morello cherries in their own orchard to add as inclusions. In addition to chocolate, Morin also make nougat, fruit jellies and pralines.

Franck Morin and team have earned a reputation for chocolate-making excellence, and we’re delighted to welcome them to our chocolate library.
