About Us

Leonidas has had a single mission since 1913: to make the most delicious and highest quality chocolates accessible to everyone. Our Belgian chocolates are now sold in more than 1,300 shops throughout the world. More than 100 varieties of chocolates, all made from chocolate with 100% pure cocoa butter. Fine chocolate, freshness, quality and accessibility are guaranteed in all Leonidas shops. Belgian chocolate lovers are right to view our chocolates as the best.


100% pure cocoa butter

Leonidas wants you to experience moments of pure delight. That's why our Maîtres Chocolatiers only use 100% pure cocoa butter chocolate. Pure cocoa butter chocolate is highly recommended for your mood. A Leonidas praline... and everyone smiles!


No palm oil

Our Maîtres Chocolatiers are obsessed with quality. For their creations, they only want pure cocoa butter. So you won't find a single drop of palm oil in our chocolate. It's better for the taste and the planet!


Sustainable cocoa

Leonidas chooses sustainable cocoa to produce its pralines. When your aim is to create moments of happiness for everyone, what’s more normal than caring about nature and humankind?

To do so, Leonidas involves renowned partners, for example Rainforest Alliance. In its sustainability approach, Leonidas also works with Cocoa Horizons on several of its products.

By doing so, we want to ensure that our chocolate benefits not only our customers, but the cocoa growers, without whom the chocolate would not exist, as well as the environment.

In concrete terms, if we consider the volumes of cocoa purchased, we can estimate that thanks to the supply of sustainable cocoa, Leonidas will help improve the working and living conditions of more than 2,000 cocoa growers’ families, mainly in Africa. 


Belgium 1913

Leonidas chocolates are 100% made in Belgium. Our Maîtres Chocolatiers respect the tradition of our know-how and transform the finest ingredients with love. Whether you taste them in Paris, London or Athens, you can enjoy the Belgian (and undoubtedly the world's) favourite chocolates.
