She added: “During our tour, our attentive and knowledgeable chocolate connoisseurs will be delighted to tell you the story of how our chocolates are made, help you decide which ones to take home, and be there as your guides and assistants as you journey through our world of hidden treasures.” At the age of 16, Jean Galler already knew that chocolate was his life. After studying pastry and chocolate in Basel, then working as an apprentice at Gaston Lenôtre in Paris, he received the title of "Best bakery-pastry chef apprentice of Belgium" in 1974.

Galler trained with the greatest chocolate masters in Switzerland and France, before bringing his own indulgent touch and a vibrant, colorful style to the world of Belgian chocolate. In June of 1976, the young craftsman founded his own chocolate manufactory in Vaux-sous-Chèvremont in the Liège area. With sweetness and indulgence deeply ingrained in his DNA, Galler went on to introduce to the world, a palate-gratifying range of chocolate bars and flavors that quickly gained iconic status among chocolate aficionados.

Described by chocoholics around the world as ‘divine’, ‘stunning’, and ‘breath-taking’, Galler combines fresh pure Belgium cocoa, all-natural syrup-free ingredients, and a focus on flawless technical execution combined with elegant packaging, to bring confectionery lovers in Qatar a rainbow of pure delights that look great and taste even better.
