About Beyers

Beyers Chocolates was founded in 1987 by Kees Beyers, a Belgian born confectioner. He identified a gap in the South African market for high quality confectionery that could compare to European products, and so he immigrated, bringing his native chocolatier training and trusted Belgian recipes to South Africa.

Beyers Chocolates is a family business, with a passion for making
high-quality confectionery. The majority of their products are handcrafted.

Beyers Chocolates is committed to food safety and product quality. This commitment is evident through the implementation of HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) based food safety programmes, in line with internationally recognised Codex Guidelines. The company has also been BRC “A” Grade approved since 2009. An independent, third party auditor assesses their food safety system on a regular basis, to ensure that they provide a safe product to their customers.
