René Goossens founded Chocolatier Goossens in 1955 and set the standard for what Goossens is today: luxury, artisan chocolates crafted using the finest ingredients. In 1977, René was named National President of the Federation of Belgian Confectioners, serving in this role until 1989.

Chocolatier Goossens is a household name in the Belgian chocolate industry.  Its range of fine, handmade chocolates has grown over the years while its superior quality has remained.

Erik Goossens, René’s son, has been in charge of the family business since 1991. He is proud to carry out the quality pledge established by his father, using hand-selected natural ingredients and the finest chocolate.  His artisan Belgian chocolates are enjoyed by industry leaders, royalty and chocoholics worldwide.

To the Goossens family, making chocolates is much more than a profession, it’s a lifelong passion!
