Chocovic has been manufacturing chocolate and cacao derivatives for all kinds of professional uses since 1872. Chocovic's origins can be traced to the city of Vic, in the province of Barcelona, where a small family business called Chocolates Arumi was set up. Its commitment to high quality service led it to create special blends for locals to suit their particular tastes. In 1977 the business was bought by a Spanish company, Nederland, which changed the name of the business to Chocovic and turned it into an industrial chocolate factory specialised in artisan pastry making and confectionery. In 2009, Chocovic entered the Barry Callebaut group, the world's leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate -- from the cocoa bean to the finished chocolate product. As such, the advantages of belonging to a large business group are combined with Chocovic's technical knowledge and experience.
