About Daniel

Daniel Poncelet, Belgian Chocolatier

Born and raised in Belgium, chocolate was an inseparable part of my daily diet. I still remember how good it was to let it melt in my mouth and try to make the piece last as long as possible in order to be the last one in the family still enjoying it.

With the guidance of Clovis Harmegnie, an exceptionally passionate Belgian master chocolatier and later having collaborated with two of the best master chocolatiers, I developed a deep appreciation for the art of making the best chocolates by using the finest and most natural ingredients. That is why I made a promise to myself and my customers over 35 years ago that Daniel’s confections would always be created without compromise, with zealous adherence to purity.

Our Philosophy

With our integrity we only use purely 100% natural ingredients free of preservatives, artificial colorings and flavors, hydrogenated, vegetable and tropical fats. We only use real fruit, real cream and infused flavours from herbs and spices.

Today, this rare level of commitment to such demanding standards is what sets Daniel le Chocolat Belge apart, and keeps our customers coming back for more.

I want to thank you for sharing my passion for chocolate. You inspire me every time you choose our delicious chocolates to be a part of your family and other celebrations.

Daniel Poncelet,
Chocolatier
