Guylian to invest €6.8m

Sea shell chocolates company Chocolaterie Guylian is to invest €6,8 million in its production in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium. With this investment, Guylian said it wants to expand its production by mid-2017 to anticipate new trends and grow in new segments internationally.

“Through this investment, we will create five to ten extra jobs here in Sint-Niklaas,” said MD Mieke Callebaut. “The investment of €6,8 million highlights the local ties of the brand, now and in the future.“

Guylian was founded in Sint-Niklaas and all Guylian chocolate is made there by the company’s master chocolatiers.

“Belgian chocolate is synonymous for premium quality and exceptional taste<” said Callebaut. “To us, it was only logical to keep the entire production on Belgian soil.” S
