We are the first Belgian producer of organic and bulk chocolate that has the aim to produce chocolate where we control the entire process from the cocoa bean to the chocolate bar.
At Nao, our team shares this same passion. This means we can coordinate the entire chocolate production chain, from the cultivation of the cocoa beans to the chocolate that you are holding.
Creator of Nao chocolates
He is at the base of the project and is full of ideas with a common thread : always improving the quality, our commitments and the guarantees we give.
If Christophe is full of ideas, it is Julien who implements them every day with the rest of the team. Beans, production, stock… So many instruments to coordinate so that the Nao score sounds right every day of the year.
Quality and administration
If chocolate making is an art, it requires method to offer consistency and maximum guarantees. Ophélie is committed to ensuring that at every stage, everything is done by the book, from the process to the certifications.
In charge of the preparation and production of our special products, Claudia is also constantly looking for new ideas, which we share with our customers in the Shop before offering them on a larger scale.
Leslie is always available to advise our merchants or answer their questions or those of our customers. Smiling and dynamic, she always has an attentive ear for our customers!
For our chocolate, every day we work with:
Once the beans are transformed into chocolate, Jan works on tempering and molding, leading to the finished product. Originally from Courtrais, he manages the production side of the business. With his 20 years of experience, Jan brings all his know-how and his love of work well done in the realization of chocolates of the highest quality!
In the production of the bars, Nathalie is in the key position for the making of a smooth and shiny chocolate.
Joao is in charge of the reception and transformation of our beans into chocolate in our workshop in Anderlecht.
For the selection and delivery of cocoa beans, we work together with:
Manager of the cooperative CECAQ
He is in charge of the global functioning of CECAQ, the accounting, the customer contact.
Katrien is constantly on the lookout for the highest quality beans, but she also works to establish links that ensure the best living conditions for producers, and the greatest ethics and transparency for our customers.
Quality, authenticity and localness
Nao, this is also the authenticity of a simple chocolate with a superior taste that we obtain thanks to our special attention when selecting our raw materials and ingredients.
Our aim is to convert chocolate into a daily pleasure. We are therefore always looking for the best compromise between quality and local to guarantee a tasty product that is accessible to all. We also ensure our range permanently evolves and follows the preferences and desires of our customers.
