                                            OUR MISSION
              Together we will establish Godiva as the World’s Ultimate Chocolate Indulgence.

                                      GODIVA WORLDWIDE
   We are the worldwide market leader in premium chocolate. We have a large retail presence in the US,
  Japan, Hong Kong, the Middle East and Europe. Our brand is available in major luxur y department stores
         all over the world and our presence in the international travel retail business is notorious.
             Thanks to our continuous efforts in branding, innovation and market trend watch,
                                   our company is growing constantly.

                                       ACCESSIBLE LUXURY
  The analysis of global trends clearly demonstrates the emergence of a new concept “Accessible Luxur y”.
     While in the past luxurious items were only for the planet’s limited wealthy today, luxur y is more
  broadly available and affordable to a broad range of consumers. To escape from the speed of modern life ,
  people tend to reward themselves more frequently with luxurious treats such as city trips, spa sessions,
                                     fine food and of course... chocolate.
    Chocolate is a truly luxurious item. From the cocoa bean to the exquisite chocolate that takes you
  away, it requires tremendous ‘savoir faire’. Only an experienced Maître Chocolatier, who knows different
              craftsmanship techniques can create these small pieces of art, inviting consumers
                                  to an unforgettable journey of the palate.
