Belvas, Northern Europe’s first ecological chocolate factory
Belvas is an innovator in the development of a sustainable economy. We defend the principles and actors of fair trade established by Fairtrade Belgium and certified by FLO-Cert (Fairtrade Labeling Organization).
We comply with organic standards certified by Certisys.
We have designed and built a chocolate factory that is ecological in its manufacturing processes.
Belvas also participates in several recycling programmes, such as the transformation of organic waste into bio-methanisation.
These disciplines and their control are carried out without the slightest compromise to the quality of our products. On the contrary, by using ingredients of the highest quality and natural ingredients, the flavours of our products are authentic. By constantly striving to maintain this quality, we want to show chocolate lovers who place their trust in us that an ethical product can also be delicious.
In collaboration with the Agro Bio Tech University in Gembloux, Belvas is conducting research into dairy ingredients, conservation and the crystallisation of lecithin-free organic chocolate.
