Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates was founded in 2004 and is a family-owned and operated business rooted in history and braced for the future. Jacques Holten, the founder, is a well-traveled chocolatier from a small, Dutch town called Blerick where he grew up amongst the iconic grain mills. His journey as a chocolatier started at the age of 10 in his sister’s bakery. Over time, dedication to his craft led to constructing memorable chocolates across Europe and eventually to the United States. From Blerick, Netherlands to Blue Lake, California — Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates will always stand for great chocolate made with all-natural ingredients.
