Chocolats Rohr :
gourmandise at the service of excellence

Founded more than 80 years ago, the Rohr chocolate factory perfumes the streets of Carouge with a sweet gourmet fragrance. Everything is created in the workshop located in the heart of old Carouge. Visiting this workshop is like stepping back in time and discovering with pleasure a quality craft, where meticulousness and scrupulous choice of noble materials are combined. Old-fashioned machines, copper containers and advanced knowledge come together to offer you a chocolate of excellence. But beyond its quality products, the Rohr chocolate factory attaches particular importance to pleasure and greed. Each creation is designed to take you on a gourmet journey, out of time. Whether in more traditional creations or in new compositions, Rohr is constantly reinventing itself in order to satisfy you and continue to make you dream. This touch of originality is brought by the new female generation, today at the helm of the family business.

Jacot Chocolatier :
the search for excellence and exclusivity for the pleasure of gourmets

Founded more than 70 years ago in the small village of Noiraigue by Marcel Jacot, the Jacot chocolate factory attaches the utmost importance to creativity and quality. The work is comparable to that of a watchmaker and is based on meticulousness, precision, attention to detail and customer satisfaction. From creation to sale, nothing is left to chance. This concern for quality is also present in the choice of raw materials for the chocolate factory, which has been working without palm oil or saturated fats since 2010. Today, Jacot Chocolatier has expanded in French-speaking Switzerland but is keen to preserve its heritage of yesteryear and works to continuously seek excellence, for your pleasure.
