Our History

LIVE MORE THAN 100 YEARS OF DULZURA

1912

THE BEGINNING

Year 2012 marks 100 years since Felipe Fort used a stone to refine the first Felfort cocoa. Back then, Felipe was just 12 years old.

From his early days, when he produced 5 kilos of handmade chocolate per night, we evolved to what we are today: an Argentinean company which industrial level can be benchmarked to the most advanced industries around the world.

1918

THE FIRST REFINER

At 18, a young Felipe Fort bought the first mechanical refiner, achieving a sharp increase in production capacity, setting Felfort apart from the rest for the quality of its chocolates. Soon after that, he began producing bonbons.

The company’s reputation started to grow based on product excellence and its assortment began to steadily grow. First candies, then Eastern eggs – which were imported from Europe until then - followed by the magnificent line of nougat candies produced by excel nougat candy masters.
