THE PROGRESS

First Chocolate Factory

Xocora grew rapidly, opening the Xocora factory in Horgen in 1970. You could actually smell chocolate in the air when production began.

Further Growth

A world-wide favourite

Finally, in 1980, Xocora released the first red foil wrapped milk chocolate truffles as part of a Christmas promotion. They became an immediate success and customers were sad to see them go once the festive season was over…

THE PROGRESS

At the forefront of chocolate innovation

In 1990, Xocora developed a ground-breaking new technology in their chocolate production: the Xocora Chocolate Process (LSCP). Next to the conching technique, this new development is the most significant in the history of Xocora chocolate production.

ORIGINAL FLAVOR
