Over the last 30 years, one of Belgium’s main producers and exporters has been Duc d'O Chocolaterie; producing luxury chocolates and truffles and now exporting to over 80 countries worldwide.
In 1983, Mr. Hendrik Verhelst, a keen chocolate lover, made his dream come true when he founded his own chocolate production company, Duc d'O Chocolaterie. From the beginning, his mission was to provide consumers with high quality products at an affordable price. A clear and simple strategy that paid off, as he saw double digit growth almost every year. His son, Paul Henri Verhelst, took over the leadership of Duc d’O and brought it into the 21st century. Since 2014 Duc d’O is part of a strong international group producing top quality chocolate at ten production sites. Within this constellation the brand Duc d’O is now able to further strengthen its position in retail and uphold its reputation as the largest producer of flaked truffles all over the world.
