Born in Belgium and raised amongst the best chocolate in the world, Guido De Meersman grew up passionate about chocolate. He entered the chocolate business as a young man, and over the years, earned the status of connoisseur.
In 1989, Guido began bringing top quality Belgian chocolate to Toronto, Canada. Over the past 25 years, the demand for top quality but affordable chocolate has grown tremendously among Canadians. Guido perceived a need to bring to Canada more variety, superior quality, and the experience of true luxury in every bite.
In Belgium, chocolate is a staple, not a luxury. – Guido De Meersman
With 40 years of experience and knowledge, Guido toured Belgium in search of the world’s most creative and talented chocolatiers. He now operates under his own name, De Meersman, to bring you collections of luxurious pralines and truffles, all hand-made by small, family-run chocolatiers located across the Flanders countryside south of Brussels to coastal Knokke-Heist.
Our Online Store
While Torontonians enjoy world-class chocolate directly from our Yorkville boutique, it is important to us to share these delicacies with rest of Canada. We frequently ship to Nova Scotia, Northern BC, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and everywhere else Canada Post can take us. We take great pride in the presentation and careful delivery of our products, and we take steps to ensure their safe arrival in excellent condition by using protective packaging.
Our online store accepts orders by PayPal or by credit card. Orders can also be placed by phone during regular business hours.
Through Canada Post and other courier services, we offer delivery options to suit your needs, including next-day delivery throughout most of Canada on orders placed before 1:00 PM; however, to ensure the arrival of your order in good condition, we prefer not to ship on Fridays for Monday delivery unless specified by the client. We are happy to accommodate specific delivery requests, and same-day delivery is available within the GTA for orders placed before 12:00 noon. If same-day delivery is required, phone orders are preferred. We are very committed to the quality, freshness and appearance of our products but we cannot accept returns on items once they have left our premises.
Note that our ballotins are available in elegant seasonal or non-seasonal gift wrapping options. Other custom decorative options are available for all products on request. If you have a particular request, please contact us by phone or leave a comment with your online order.
