Oliver Van Nueten

As a young and talented entrepreneur, at the age of 19, in 2017 Oliver Van Nueten started the family business. 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 and examples David Maenhout (Chocolatier M, Knokke) and Dominique Persoone (The Chocolate Line, Bruges) gave Oliver his inspiration and experience in the chocolate business. You could almost say he has chocolate running through his veins.

Still in the early stages of starting his business Oliver was already internationally highly demanded for lectures, demonstrations, and creating custom made chocolate show pieces. Although already called the ‘chocolate artist’ in the media Oliver remains both feet on the ground and focusses on continuous improvement of his skills.


Since Oliver at the start was 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 show pieces he made also caught the attention of the national and international press. E.g. he presented a full scale replica of a professional race bicycle made for 100% out of chocolate to Olympic Champion Greg Van Avermaet (BMC), a world scoop, and he made a 150 cm long, fully detailed chocolate model of a cruise ship on the occasion of the opening of the Cruise terminal of Bruges (Zeebrugge) in Belgium.

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.
