Galler’s story began 40 years ago. Founder Jean Galler left school at age 16 to begin an apprenticeship in a bakery. Five years later, he opened his first chocolate shop. Galler is a Belgian family company through and through, with everything made and distributed locally. It is best known for its multi-flavoured batons as well as its iconic collaboration with Belgian cartoonist Philippe Geluck on the chocolate cats’ tongues. This home-grown brand is now recognised internationally, with outlets as far as South Korea and the Middle East. Its appeal is its accessibility to high-quality chocolate, and its unusual flavour pairings, such as the recently launched lavender and lime praline.
