Union Edel Chocolade
"Union" was set up in 1902. In 2010 the business was bought by the PortionPack Europe Holding and integrated in 2011 in the activities of PortionPack Belgium. Union Edel Chocolade is a producer of Napolitains (4.5g and 8.5g), all produced using the very best quality Belgian chocolate. Within the "Union" offer, we distinguish between two types of Neapolitans: the Neapolitan with a personalised wrapper (which is developed and produced on the instruction of the client) and the Neapolitan with the standard wrapper (which is developed by "Union" and intended for a number of clients). The Neapolitans with a standard wrapper are divided into collections. These are destined to be sold in specific seasons (seasonal collections), in specific tourist locations (tourist collections) or throughout the year to a wide-ranging public (regular collections).
