They say it’s what’s on the inside that matters – and this definitely goes for chocolate, too. But when it comes to colorful figures that are also guaranteed to catch the eye, there’s no doubt we’re talking about top-quality chocolate by Riegelein! This is why when it comes to making our own chocolate liquor, only the best is good enough. We only produce our chocolate using a meticulous selection of the finest raw materials, such as exquisite cocoa, cocoa butter, whole milk and sugar, all of which are consistently subjected to the strictest control measures. This way we can ensure the highest standards of quality.
First-class ingredients call for gentle processing methods. Cutting-edge conche machines and rolling mills ensure a high degree of fineness, creating the particularly delicate glaze that has come to distinguish Riegelein and its predominantly milk chocolate figures. With a cocoa content of 33%, our fine milk chocolate is especially popular. And since we can never get enough of good quality, we constantly invest in new production equipment and processing technology, uniting traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-art development in perfect harmony.
Our products are regularly distinguished with gold and silver medals.
At the beginning of the Christmas season in 2011, Riegelein successfully adapted its entire hand-decorated confectionery range to meet Fairtrade standards. The Fairtrade Mark is an independently controlled product certificate for fair trade. It focuses primarily on people in southern regions, offering support to small farmers and workers in developing countries in order to improve their position in the world market.
The Fairtrade Mark guarantees that the raw materials used to make the chocolate products are ecologically cultivated with moral economics and traded in a socially responsible manner. Fixed minimum prices for cocoa production provide security and long-term development opportunities for farmers in the developing countries. This ensures the sustainable support and improvement of their working and living conditions. Through the payment of the additional Fairtrade Premium towards community projects, investments are also made in health, education and the environment. The quality of the chocolate benefits as well, not only through the introduction of quality controls and on-site training courses on topics such as fermentation technology, but also through a larger cultivation variety and higher-yield crops.
