Manufacture of cocoa, chocolate and sugar confectionery


This confectionery is a gourmet specialty made in France. It is a premium quality "chocolate candy", its particularity is to present itself as a "trompe l'oeil" (optical illusion) : it looks like real seashells such as cockles. The targeted countries are all those who have an interest with the sea shore or for high quality confectionery. Cooperation type selected is distribution services agreement.



A French chocolate candy dealer, working exclusively with a French high-quality chocolate craftsman, is looking for distributors (gourmets shops, delicatessen).

A distributor who adopts this product would be guaranteed to offer its customers an original and unusual confectionery while being of high quality.

The company is more interested in the fact to be present at the right place in as many countries as possible than in quantitative operations. It's a matter of pride !

In order to increase its international turnover, the company is looking for new partners interested in this product. The partner could be a distributor with a network in delicatessen, gourmet shops, French products retailers, or directly this kind of local shops.

The distributor shall also help to adapt the packaging regarding the regulation.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
This gourmet confectionery is innovative in several ways : - First of all, it is unlike anything usually found on the market, - The shape of the candy itself is quite realistic, - The texture is also surprising because it looks like if there is sand crunching under your teeth - The randomness of the flavours of Norman origin adds a playful side to the tasting. It is a praline with a touch of either fudges, marine salt or teurgoule (a Norman dessert specialty with cinnamon inside)

It will be expected from the partner help with local regulation (for instance labelling features and translation)
