Fine chocolates crafted at origin
We are a Colombian family owned chocolate manufacturer, founded in 1906. Through direct sourcing and a full integration of the value chain from bean to chocolate bar, we have developed an in-depth knowledge of Colombian Fine Flavour Cocoas and how to express their uniqueness through a portfolio of exceptional fine chocolates crafted at origin. Luker Chocolate partners with brands and companies around the world who are deeply committed to quality and sustainability, to develop gourmet chocolates and create shared value at origin.
Luker Chocolate’s history began in the early 1900s, when chocolate was considered a luxury for Colombia. For many years, the company’s founders pioneered the development of what is considered today as one of Colombia’s main food staples. Through the production of a consistent high-quality chocolate for hot beverages, we led the growth of the cocoa industry in Colombia.
This entrepreneurial spirit, which is still in the company’s DNA, was also the force behind the company’s internationalization plan. Today, through our B2B business, Luker Chocolate as a chocolate company, reaches more than 40 countries with customers in a wide spectrum of F&B categories including high-end confectionery, bakery, snacking, and beverages. Our portfolio of chocolate ingredients and private label solutions makes the best from the diversity of Colombian fine flavour cocoas while catering to growing trends relevant to today’s conscious consumer. We meet the needs of the world finest chocolate retail stores.
As a company with strong ties to cocoa-growing communities in Colombia and a firm belief in the power of creating shared value, we started The Chocolate Dream, a unique collaborative sustainability plan with a long-term vision to improve wellbeing in the communities we work with.
A key element of creating shared value at origin is the ability to maintain environmental balance in cocoa-growing communities.
As of 2021, Luker Chocolate is carbon neutral across all owned operations, including its farms. As part of these efforts, Luker achieved a reduction of 52% in refrigerant CO2 emissions from 2020 to 2021, due to modifications made to chocolate production equipment.
The next stage is to become carbon neutral with outside providers by the end of 2027.
