Chocolate addictive, Focus on LOCAL BUSINESS.

15 Jun

I just received wonderfull news from Australia, Tim Davies of Daintree Chocolate.

You are famous in Australia!!!  This article ran yesterday (14 June) in the local newspaper in Mossman, Far North Queensland where our cocoa is grown!!!


Local choc biz (Daintree) sells “ice to Eskimos“(us Belgians).

SELLING local chocolate to Belgians is the equivalent of selling ice to Eskimos or coal to Newcastle.

Belgians are known as the in the chocolate businnes and only use the finest ingredients to whip up their delicious treats, so, when a far northern company cracked that merket it was a sweet reward for years of hard work. Etc…


One well-known Belgian dessert shop, the Patisserie Vercruysse, which is owned and run by a working patissier Geert Vercruysse, is located in the suburd Kortrijk and makes some of the finest chocolates using product from Daintree Estate. Etc…

The moment I receive this article (I only have a pdf-file now) I shall post-it.

    Geert, their chocolate tastes great, until now I know only the bars. Have to take a tour south to Kortrijk to taste your products made from Daintree.
