Neuhaus is a manufacturer of luxurious Belgian chocolates, delicious biscuits and artisanal ice cream. The company was founded in Brussels in 1857 by Jean Neuhaus, a Swiss immigrant, who opened a first store in the Galeries St.-Hubert. In 1912, his grandson, Jean Neuhaus II, invented the chocolate bonbon or 'praline'. Three years later, the 'ballotin' was invented to avoid that the pralines were crushed together.
Today, Neuhaus is more popular than ever and has over 1000 selling points in 40 countries. All Neuhaus delicacies are still made in Vlezenbeek, near Brussels, and are exported worldwide. In 2000, the company has been named Accredited Supplier to the Belgian Crown.
