VELVETiNO started in 2009 as a family business, rising from migrant heritage we began as a humble street market stall selling espresso coffee, but it was our traditional Italian Cioccolata made to an old country family recipe that quickly gained a reputation for excellence. Demand was so great we began to exclusively sell our Italian Hot Chocolate (Cioccolata Calda) which rapidly grew in popularity.
Word spread beyond the market and soon everyone was asking us to commercialise our chocolate, so that’s what we did. We set about producing our classic traditional Italian Cioccolata in commercial quantities and soon our humble product was being used in homes, by baristas for hot & cold beverages and by chefs mixing with wonderful ingredients. After many years we are still a family owned business, we are very proud of our brand and product and are looking forward to adding to our range to meet ever growing needs.
