Marcolini is recognized as the pioneer of the so-called bean-to-bar sourcing principle. He chooses his own cocoa beans to process them into chocolate in his studio in Haren.
The Belgian chocolatier started his first business in Kraainem (Brussels) back in 1995. That same year, he won the title of World Pastry Champion. Thanks to the help of the city’s investment fund, Marcolini was able to further develop his business internationally. Today, House Pierre Marcolini counts more than 40 stores in several countries including Belgium, France, the United Kingdom, Japan and China.
