Company Snapshot

One of the few female entrepreneurs in her country, Marisol created L’Atelier du Chocolat to produce and sell gourmet, artisanal chocolate to a wide Mexican audience. Known for its luxurious taste, artistic designs, and decorative packaging, L’Atelier chocolate is already sold at high-end boutiques throughout Mexico City and at the country’s most chic and highest-grossing department stores. Going forward, Marisol plans to expand to locations throughout the country and cultivate the production of high-quality chocolate ingredients in Mexico — while redefining the culture of chocolate in its ancient birthplace. Since selection, L’Atelier du Chocolat has grown from six boutiques to 20 boutiques across Mexico…and it’s only the beginning.
