Chocolatier Ludwig Ratzinger is a 4th generation Pastry and Bakery Chef originally from Germany, who now resides in Maberly, Central Frontenac.
Ludwig makes premium chocolate bars. He works with "noble-grade" Criollo, Trinitario and Wild Cocoa beans from selected farmers in Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Dominican Republic, refined in Switzerland under the highest quality standards. The transformation from cocoa bean to bar is finalized by Ludwig, hand- pouring the tempered chocolate into moulds and ending up with a superior chocolate bar. The cocoa beans are all single origin and a mark-up of "50% higher than fair trade prizes" is paid to the farmers to ensure that the highest social, environmental, economical and quality standards are met.
