Belvas

Belvas is 50% energy self-sufficient thanks to the installation of 396 photovoltaic panels and a unique heat recovery system for the air conditioning system.

Belvas produces authentic flavours with pure and quality ingredients. Their motto: only natural! This counts as much for the chocolate made of 72% cocoa as for the butter, the organic almonds from Murcia, the organic hazelnuts from Piedmont, the organic pistachios from Sicily, organic fresh cream (made locally, obviously!), the vanilla and all the other ingredients used in their chocolate factory. No preservatives, artificial colouring or aromas, flavour enhancers, GMOs or hydrogenated fats are used. In addition, all Belvas products are gluten free.

The different origins of the ingredients used also inspire the wide variety of flavours in the company’s chocolate collection.
