In 1875, Swiss entrepreneur Daniel Peter invented milk chocolate and changed the culinary world forever. Now, 145 years later, the brand Peter founded continues to lead the way in the creation of exceptional chocolates for the world’s most selective chocolatiers, bakers and chefs.
In 1901, more than 20 years after Daniel Peter gave the world its first taste of milk chocolate, Peter's Chocolate discovered America-and vice-versa. With a series of whimsical advertisements, importer Lamont Corliss & Company introduced Americans to the delights of the original Swiss milk chocolate.
Today we remain faithful to our Swiss heritage, combining our proprietary crumb base with chocolate liquor to create superlative milk chocolates. We purchase only the highest quality beans and individually roast them to achieve the distinctive flavor profiles characteristic of the various bean origins. Peter’s Chocolate has built a premium product line to satisfy and delight your most particular customer.
