Well chosen ingredients
Produce “the very best Belgian chocolates”, that’s the passion of the Ovidias team. That is why we are focused in detail on the strictest quality requirements for food. This resulted in wonderful evaluations in the past 15 years.
Ovidias only uses the best ingredients for the preparation of fresh Belgian chocolates and luxury chocolate gifts. The delicious filling, according to traditional Ovidias recipe, is made in our own kitchen.
For the production of its chocolates Ovidias guarantees to use only raw materials which are certified GMO (genetically modified) free. Besides, we add no preservatives: our recipe contains mainly natural flavours, which allow you to enjoy fair and fresh Belgian chocolates.
Because the quality of our product comes in first place we only use Barry Callebaut chocolate: with only real cacao butter, without substitution by other fats.
Chocolate is a delicate product. The shelf life of traditional chocolates is limited, and the taste experience of a chocolate is gradually reduced. The conservation of freshness and taste is a process elevated to the status of art by Ovidias. The flavour of our chocolates is preserved thanks to our methods and cold storage below +7°C.
The fresh pack also means that fresh chocolates may be stored at cold temperatures.
Ovidias is holder of the IFS, BRC and ACG quality standard certificates. We meet all these requirements with a percentage at the highest level. These inspection systems meet the strictest standards of the current legislation on food.
