“I was born in chocolate; it has seduced me and I have dedicated myself all my life to this art. I have lived a wonderful dream.” Pierre Draps, 1919 – 2012
In this true story you will discover how a craftsman chocolatier from Italy gained worldwide fame and acclaim for his legendary chocolate.
THE STORY OF GODIVA STARTS WITH PRALINE.
First combined with chocolate in Belgium, finely ground hazelnut or almonds and caramelised sugar became renowned worldwide as classic Belgian chocolate. In 1926, Pierre Draps Senior handcrafted praline chocolates, or pralines, in the workshop of his Brussels home and the smooth, creamy Godiva praline chocolate was born.
His wife and four children were equally involved in producing, finishing, packaging, and delivering their chocolate confectionery delights at Pierre’s at-home chocolate factory.
These decadent and irresistible chocolates deserved an evocative name, and the Godiva brand was the perfect fit for the family’s luxury chocolate brand. From the old English legend, Lady Godiva is known for her passion, boldness, and generosity, all of which can be found on the packaging and signage of Godiva chocolates, godiva dark chocolate and godiva peal dark chocolates around the world.
Draps Yvonne eventually took over the Godiva legacy – making the brand renowned today by evolving it from the atelier in Brussels to a global brand. Godiva began as a home business owned by Joseph Draps and relocated to the Boulevard Leopold in Brussels.
Although Godiva is now available in more than 80 countries worldwide, its values are still true to those created by Pierre Draps and his family, as well as his father before him. A collection of chocolates that is irresistible to chocolate lovers everywhere, Godiva chocolate is inspired by the passion, boldness, and generosity of their namesake.
