“We all know chocolate connects people – what could be better than enjoying a moment together?

Northern Italian tradition meets Swiss chocolate craftsmanship 

“Tartufi dolci” literally translates as “sweet truffles” and the treats are inspired by the traditional confectionery of Northern Italy. Each exquisite Tartufo is made from the finest gianduja. Carefully selected ingredients are then added to create nine indulgent varieties, lovingly crafted in Ennenda in Switzerland using a multi-step process to form these tiny delicacies. The Tartufi Walnut contain crunchy almond nougat pieces and walnut brittle roasted in maple syrup. High-quality chocolate, manufactured by the family company, always forms the foundation. The fresh taste of Läderach chocolate begins in the rain forest and in the Swiss Alps. Läderach is one of the few chocolate manufacturers that monitors the entire production process from the cocoa bean all the way to the shop counter. Läderach chocolate is manufactured in Switzerland in the canton of Glarus. This holistic view allows the Swiss chocolatier to guarantee the sustainable, premium quality of its cocoa, and to use this top-quality cocoa to make exquisite chocolate.
