PRODUCTION SITES, OUR BRANDS & CORE FIGURES
The beating heart of Hamlet lies in Vrasene. The group’s activities are managed from this location. This is where the quality department, packaging processing, customer service and the R&D department are located.
Hamlet also has its own logistics centre.
This logistics centre measures 10,000 square metres and offers space for 9,500 pallets. We use our own refrigerated trucks to transport goods in Belgium and the Netherlands. For transport to other neighbouring countries Hamlet cooperates with certified partners.
In addition, Hamlet owns 2 production facilities with a daily production of up to 25 tons of chocolate. A third production location is under construction. All production facilities are committed to quality. Every single day a team works on the development of new products. Continuous training and investments in ultra-modern machinery ensure our companies lead the field.
This facility produces the various ranges of chocolates. Traditional, marketable and delicious fillings are made in the kitchens. Every day up to 10 tons of small, delicious artworks are produced here.
A & A chocolaterie
This facility, by the E17 motorway, produces our figurines with hazelnut filling and decorated chocolate figurines. As you drive by, you are sure to spot the huge chocolate tanks. This facility also accommodates the packaging department for numerous gift wraps and displays. Every day, 15 tons of chocolate are processed to produce artistic delicacies here.
At the production unit ‘Royal Chocolates’, the different varieties of chocolate thins are being produced. This unique and patented delicacy is produced in a fully automated way. The production line spits out no less than 5200 chocolate thins per minute. This equals an annual capacity of 7700 tons of Belgian chocolate.
The construction work for this new production facility started in January 2020. With this new facility, we hope to make even more consumers happy with our divine chocolates. We expect the first chocolates to be produced at the beginning of 2021. More info coming soon!
