Chocolate House

Meet the man behind the chocolates, Jan Hansen

Whilst working in Belgium and Holland for several years, Jan Hansen – proprietor of Hansen's Chocolate House – developed his connoisseur taste for chocolate. Having refined his palette with many luxury chocolates, Jan realised the potential to market his now renowned products.

Having developed his knowledge and skills by collecting books and attending trade shows abroad, the keen innovator, whose proudest moment is his 'Rolls Royce' Cherry Liqueur, says his greatest challenge is finding new ways to present his much-loved confectionary.
