The native home of Zaabär
The chocolate factory Zaabär was founded in 2007. The creator was inspired by a wide array of spices floating around the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. Zaabär was created as an extraordinary combination of fine Belgian chocolate and spices from around the world. The idea is to let your taste buds roam free across the world tasting various more exotic or traditional spices. One of the aspects that nudges Zaabär out of the ordinary, apart from the truly exceptional combination of spices and chocolate, is the unusual vacuum sealed wrapping in which the chocolates are kept in. This wrapping offers a much longer conservation time for all types of chocolate.
The Zaabär factory was redesigned completely in the summer of 2018 and is now The Belgian Chocolate Makers. We offer a tremendous space of 600m2 entirely dedicated to chocolate experiences with both a huge workshop and an amazing chocolate store. We invite all our visitors to explore the tremendous world of our handmade Belgian chocolate through an array of chocolate samples, workshops and other activities, so come visit us!
