L.K. Van Leer came to America from Holland and started the Van Leer Chocolate Corporation on Christmas Day 1949. Right from the beginning, he was dedicated to being the industry leader. He thrived to make the finest chocolates and provide the very best service.
L.K. Van Leer's legacy has lived on ever since and for over three generations, we have used the finest ingredients to craft a full range of high quality chocolates with a distinct North American appeal.
Today, Van Leer continues this taste tradition with the support of Barry Callebaut and its 150 years of chocolate making experience.
Van Leer’s traditional range of products includes chocolate couvertures, chips, chunks, compounds, glazes and sugar-free products in various formats. In addition, Van Leer offers a selection of premium items including chocolate made with Belgian unsweetened chocolate, certified ingredients and high cacao content.
