About Us
Happy Graduation to all the Students of Ecolechocolat

Ecole Chocolat Graduates

We're pleased to be able to promote our Ecole Chocolat graduates as they open their businesses! You'll see below that our grads are an eclectic group of artisan chocolatiers or chocolate makers working across the globe. Each student comes into our program with his or her own passion and vision for chocolate work. It's very satisfying for us to see them translate that passion and vision into a unique business. EC Graduates - To respect your privacy, we don't add your business to this page unless asked. If you would like to be added, just send us an email.
