ApoEna Chocolates was founded in 2016 as a family business in Portlaoise, Ireland. With a tasty selection of products and the authentic feel that can only be achieved through hard work and grassroots beginnings, they have taken foothold in their local economy as a premium provider of quality chocolate produce. Their local-based business started out in the local Farmer and Cottage Markets in their community, and has now taken off to become a rising national brand.
ApoEna’s colorful, vibrant candies and goodies, are what sets them apart from any other chocolate maker. Made from the Finest Belgian chocolate, people have enjoyed their high quality chocolate produce, by ordering online or visiting their stands, in various local markets.
As a family run business, they believe in supporting local economy and small businesses everywhere, which is why their business model revolves around sourcing quality, safe, and pure ingredients from within our community.
“Our vision for ApoEna Chocolates is that our products will continue to permeate throughout the world, and that we provide a real, quality chocolate experience to everyone. Even as our hopes for ApoEna Chocolates are vast, we will always remain a family business that has risen up by the power of our community and the support that we have provided each other.”
