Belcolade Selection Cacao-Trace: great taste for years and years and years

Our conventional Belcolade Selection range is already well known for its great taste and excellent performance. With Belcolade Selection Lait and Noir Cacao-Trace™, we’ve raised the bar still further and created one of the finest chocolates available on the market. The chocolate tastes as good as the story behind it. Better still, it offers terrific value for money: not only will you have superior quality and tasting chocolate but a great story you can tell your customers.
