About us

We do everything to make our customers’ hearts melt.


‘Chocolate is more than just a sweet. It embodies passion, affection and is a symbol of honest compassion between people.’ (Juliette Binoch, French actress in the film Chocolat and Oscar winner)

To seduce, or be seduced? With chocolate, for instance? Who can – or would want to – resist the sweetest of all temptations?! Chocolate melts hearts, a ‘thank you’ that tantalizes the taste buds, a small gift with big impact.

At Riegelein, we do everything to impress our customers with new creations and exquisite treats made of chocolate. After all, we can’t imagine anything better than using our passion for detail to make first-class products that bring joy to everyone. And of course, our chocolate expertise really sets us apart – when it comes to developing new, unique shapes and designs, our creativity and ingenuity guarantee we stand out.

‘Chocolate creativity’ lies at the core of our company philosophy – that stands for the widest, most diverse range of seasonal chocolate products in the confectionery sector.

Right from the beginning, we have consistently focused our efforts on the creation of chocolate products for special occasions all year round. Our specialty is the production and sale of seasonal products and treats to enjoy, decorate and give on special occasions. Utmost importance is given to product and process quality. This clear focus is what has made Riegelein so irresistibly unique for decades.

Fuelled by endless spirit and originality, we continue to set new standards on the market. Together with a network of expert designers, we constantly develop new figures to join our traditional Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and friends. And even though Riegelein figures often reflect the spirit of the times, we remain uncompromisingly traditional – achieving the highest quality through exquisite ingredients and the finest processing. Our delicious chocolate products are made following age-old family recipes. The impact of our constant success is immediately apparent on store shelves – millions of Riegelein figures that delight chocolate lovers all over the world.
