Named after its founder, John de Spa, de Spa Chocolatier is a boutique chocolatier. Belgium born Jean-Marie Bara brings over forty years experience to de Spa’s team of chocolatiers. He believes fresh is best, his chocolates are never stored; it’s straight from the factory to the box. Only the finest Belgium Callebut chocolate paste is used to give the chocolates their wonderfully smooth texture and taste. Fruit and dairy ingredients come from the best local suppliers. A wonderful combination of the best of the best.
The seventy different varieties of chocolates are handmade in their Christchurch factory, beautifully crafted in Belgium moulds, hand packaged and wrapped. Taste is paramount and does not disappoint, these are great chocolates. de Spa supplied their chocolates to many stores across New Zealand as well as their own three retail stores in Christchurch, Wellington and Invercargill. International sales are growing via their online store.
Dairy and sugar free chocolates are available, just ask. Jean-Marie is also pretty amazing with gateaux and petit fours with his renowned skills in demand for weddings and corporate events.
