There’s no denying that chocolate it the ultimate sweet pleasure. They just seem to fill you with joy, no matter what the occasion, whether you are celebrating with your friends spending time with the family or looking to share it with a special person in your life. Especially in Greece as there are many great tasting chocolate brands to choose from. However there is one that we think takes 1st place – chocolate by ION.
ION started manufacturing in 1927, creating their first chocolate recipe. ION officially launched in Athens in 1930 and is considered of the most well know and popular chocolates. Since it’s inception, they have continued to create new varieties of chocolate as well as diversifying into other confectionery products. Such as croissants and even spreadable chocolate.
In 1947 ION created a new variation, ION Amigdalou (Almond). Featuring more mature flavour but still very high in ION Cocoa Chocolate. This chocolate is filled with whole almonds, offering a perfect combination of chocolate and nuts. To most Greeks ION Amygdalou is the best chocolate in the world and couldn’t agree more!
In 1998, the great Greek chocolate company decided to expand its business activities abroad and become a Greek chocolate manufacturer with international status.
Today, ION keeps growing and evolving as a 100% Greek enterprise and keeps its traditional values and doesn’t compromise taste.
With three ultramodern production plants in Greece, 950 employees and a turnover of more than 110 million euros on an annual basis, ION is among the 60 largest industrial companies in Greece.
