Raffinée Holding box

chocoMe wanted to create a holder completely different from any other chocolate product, that makes the Raffinee pieces easily accessible for the consumers and urges them to take one after the other. By removing the cover consumer find a parchment paper bag holding the Raffinees, which after opening and folding to the sides of the box, shapes a chalice like serving bowl.

Most of chocoMe’s chocolate creations are topped with lyophilized (freeze-dried) fruits. No wonder: these specially prepared fruits contain no moist, still the characteristic flavours remain intact, along with important vitamins and minerals. chocoMe had an idea of a new product, where these natural fruit flavours may dominate more emphatically – so chocoMe Raffinée was born. In a tiny Raffinée sphere the lyophilized strawberry or sour cherry is softly embraced by a thin chocolate layer to keep the natural flavour experience while introducing the pleasant accompanying flavour of chocolate at the same time. The two chosen lyophilized fruits are not all the only options chocoMe has to offer. For example Piemonte hazelnuts have recently made their debut amongst chocoMe’s toppings. These nuts, considered the tastiest in the world, also put on a thin milk chocolate coat (with 40% cocoa content) for Raffinée. The Raffinée dragées, coated with special quality chocolate well-known from the chocoMe bars, are placed into an elegant container, which also functions as a gift box. Upon removing the cover, the box unfolds into a stylish bowl, presenting the Raffinée dragées in an exquisitely aesthetic serving.


chocoMe was established with the ultimate purpose of creating the perfect bar of chocolate. Since perfection means something different for each chocolate lover, chocoMe provides the possibility of creating more than 60 million different variations of uniquely designed, customized chocolate bars. chocoMe's primary objective is to continuously produce premium-quality chocolates, which meet the consumers’ demands in every respect as well as comply with the requirements of food hygiene. Perfect chocolates demand the finest ingredients: this is why chocoMe uses only premium chocolate bases with 100 % cocoa butter content, provided by Callebaut, the world’s largest chocolate manufacturer company, and procures its diverse topping ingredients through carefully chosen German, Italian and French suppliers. During their business activity they apply stringent standards and strict requirements to make sure that their food products meet both the official regulations and the customers’ demands. When chocoMe creates chocolates in the spirit of making no compromises, they uses exclusively premium quality ingredients; furthermore, to avoid the mass-production process, they prepare and package every bar of chocolate with their own hands. chocoMe pays special attention not only to using the best-quality ingredients, but also to producing a breath-takingly unique, highly impressive appearance during the process of placing the toppings on their chocolate bases – which by now has become the distinctive “trademark” feature of chocoMe. chocoMe's basic idea of striving for perfection and making no compromises can be detected in all stages of the production: from the point of obtaining the ingredients through all the steps of manufacturing to the delivery of the finished product. Being innovative is not only a pursuit, but an essential aid for chocoMe: this is how they can remain one step ahead of their business competitors, and this quality also ensures the constant improvement of their product.
