Anvers Confectionery Pty Ltd
Chocolate-maker Igor Van Gerwen was trained by world renowned confectioner Roger Geerts in his native Belgium before founding Anvers Confectionery in north-west Tasmania in 1989.
Van Gerwin painstakingly trained his Tasmanian staff in the arts of manipulating chocolate and insisted from the start on using only the finest ingredients.
He uses fresh Tasmanian cream, pure butter, exquisite liquors and natural flavours to complement the world's finest chocolate. Anvers' dark chocolate has a cacao content of 64% and the milk chocolate 35%. Its structure is three times finer than most commercial chocolates.
