When are your opening hours?
Because the products we make at our atelier in Zeebrugge are mostly on order, but also regularly we organize in-house workshops and demonstrations, we do follow courses, attend to fairs, and frequently are working away from the atelier, our opening hours are variable. You can find our opening hours weekly on our website and on social media.
In order to be able to serve you in the most optimal way we try to be present in our atelier as much as possible.
Is Van Nueten Chocolates a shop where anyone can buy, or is it more an atelier as such?
Van Nueten Chocolates in Zeebrugge is an atelier where we mainly create and produce sculptures and pralines on order for individuals as well as for companies, restaurants, hotels, etc. However as we want to convey the chocolatier's handcraft as much as possible to the public everyone is more than welcome to take a look in our atelier when we are at work, taste the pralines we have available at the moment, and if desired buy a box of pralines or a sculpture. We also provide workshops, demonstrations and incentives to introduce our visitors to chocolate- and sugar processing and sculpturing and to the 'profession of the chocolatier' in general.
Do you have a wide range of pralines that can be chosen?
Since we are not a real store in the true sense we don't have an extensive range of pralines in stock on a permanent basis, we try to offer a variety of a minimum of 5 different pralines in our atelier at all times. The visitor can always taste and make a choice between the different available varieties which we present in a luxury praline box. This has the advantage that there are always new tastes and shapes to be discovered. We also produce pralines on order, even for small quantities. If you are fond of a particular praline you have ever tasted with us, feel free to ask and we will make them specially for you.
Do you offer personalized and custom made products to everyone?
Our customers range from companies, hotels, clubs, event organizations, schools, etc. to individuals. For example: We create exclusive pralines for restaurants that are only available in our client's establishment. There are always solutions for everyone's budget. If you want pralines with your own logo, special shape or taste, feel free to discuss the possibilities. Also for custom made sculptures in sugar or chocolate we never back away from any challenge.
Do you offer gluten-free pralines, what about allergies?
Most of our pralines are gluten-free, but in order to make sure you can always inquire with us for more detailed information. Please let us know if you have allergies or if you should avoid eating certain ingredients. Van Nueten Chocolates guarantees the highest quality for their products by offering world class standards in hygiene- and food safety as well as a permanent profound quality control system.
