“I was born in chocolate... it has seduced me and I have dedicated myself all my life to this art. I have lived a wonderful dream”.
Pierre Draps, Founder of Godiva Chocolatier, 1919-2012
Crafting chocolate isn’t just what we do; it’s our passion. It’s transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary and creating the most beautiful chocolate experiences imaginable.
OUR BELGIAN HERITAGE
We’re not just chocolate craftsmen, we’re chocolate pioneers. Since 1926, we’ve been elevating our craft into an art form. It all began with our founder, Pierre Draps Sr, making pralines in his confectionery workshop in Brussels.
The art and craft of the Draps dynasty now rests in the highly skilled hands of our chef chocolatiers. Based around the world, our Belgian-trained perfectionists draw on local tastes and trends to add the innovative and unusual to our collections.
As a premium chocolate icon the world over, there isn’t much about chocolate we don’t know. Allow us to share what makes our chocolate so special - from cacao history to tasting journeys and how our iconic chocolates and collections are made.
Here at Godiva, we aim to bring opportunity and hope to the world by enriching lives and the planet. We believe sustainability is a way of doing business: to do well by doing good. We strive to invest in programs and practices that lead to lasting positive outcomes for our consumers, partners and communities.
