As a young and talented entrepreneur, at the age of 19, Oliver Van Nueten started a family business which can be called sensational at the least.

The driven master chocolatier, graduated from 'Ter Groene Poorte' in Bruges (a world renowned Hotel and Gourmet School), specializing in Belgian chocolates.

His great tutors David Maenhout (Chocolatier M, Knokke) and Herman Janssens (Manus, Brasschaat) gave Oliver his inspiration and experience in the chocolate business. You could almost say he has chocolate running through his veins.

Still in the first year of starting his business Oliver is internationally highly demanded for lectures, demonstrations and creating custom made chocolate show pieces. Recently he traveled to Los Angeles (USA) and to Takoradi (Ghana) for demonstrations on special request. Although already called a ‘Chocolate Artist’ in the media Oliver remains both feet on the ground and focusses on continuous improvement of his skills.

Since Oliver is the youngest master chocolatier with his own business in Belgium  and most probably in the world, there has been an extensive media interest for his work. The chocolate showpieces he made also caught the attention of the national and international press. Just recently he presented a full scale replica of a professional race bicycle made for 100% out of chocolate to Olympic Champion Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) on the occasion of his victory last year, a world scoop.

Oliver and his modest team, consisting mainly of family members, consider Belgian chocolate as part of our national pride. Van Nueten Chocolates aims to become an international ambassador of traditional Belgian chocolate with a modern and surprising twist.
