Our history began in the early 1920s near Rotterdam: the three partners Barents, Roth and Niewenhuis made their passion for chocolate into an institution by founding the Baronie company.
In the following decades, Baronie grew steadily. Chocolate factories with a long tradition such as De Heer, Continental and Stollwerck became part of the Baronie group. Strong brands and strong products from the house of Baronie impressed the trade – and from there found their way to consumers’ living rooms and confectionery plates.
Today Baronie produces top-quality Belgian and Swiss chocolate at ten sites and is among the biggest chocolate makers in the Netherlands and Belgium. A lot has happened since we were founded, but one thing has not changed: our passion for chocolate.
