About Us

Always different, always good,
Always healthy for you and the planet!

Everyone loves chocolate, but finding good chocolate isn’t always easy. Thankfully, our married co-founders, Josée Vigneault and Jean-René Lemire, aimed to fix that when they started Theobroma Chocolat. Their philosophy was simple: make good chocolate, the good way. That’s why our partnerships with producers, master craftsmen and companies all respect the balance we must achieve between the quality of our organic ingredients and the respectable and fair nature in which they are sourced and produced.

Since our inception in 2008, our main focus has always been to develop and produce GMO-free and gluten-free chocolates, created with pure, natural and completely organic cocoa bases.

The production and use of recyclable and renewable materials are priorities for Theobroma Chocolat. We are constantly looking for innovations likely to favour sustainable development.

We may have started in the Quebec City region, but our vision for naturally good chocolate is one we hope to share with people all over the world for years to come!


Our focus on Fairtrade certification is a reflection of the leadership that exists at Theobroma Chocolat.

Our Story​

While eating chocolates on the Trans-Canada Highway, inspiration struck Josée Vigneault. She knew in her heart what she wanted to do. This calling to create something new, with the help of her spouse Jean-René Lemire, is what would become Theobroma Chocolat.

In 2008, following a forced reorganization of the quarry, Canada’s first organic chocolate processing plant was born. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, with the approval of 3 Dragons, as well as more than 10 years of experience under our belts, Theobroma Chocolat has become a leader in organic & fair trade gourmet chocolates in North America.

At the heart of our co-founder’s approach, there is a philosophy of balancing the quality of our organic ingredients with the respectable and fair nature in which they are sourced and produced. Simply put, we wanted to make sure our chocolate was good, in more ways than one.


Responsible chocolate factory and North American leader, recognized for the quality of its human talents, tastes and creations where every delicious bite of chocolate created and made by our chocolatiers makes a positive difference for future generations.
