Once upon a time a watchmaker fell in love with the daughter of a chocolate maker from Geneva. By marrying her, he also embraced the chocolate making profession, which he learnt alongside his stepfather.
This love story continued through seven generations of the Favarger family, men and women driven by exacting standards, a desire for independence and a sense of loyalty.
The places, pictures, photographs and old books recount through the years the story of a profession and of a family of Genevan entrepreneurs.
Today Favarger remains a family-run business.
Day after day the same values and ethos motivate men and women who draw upon the treasures of this history to inspire its future.
