From Italy with love, to Belgium with passion

Italy has a delightful love affair with ice cream that dates all the way back to the Roman empire, when the Arabs mixed snow from Mount Etna with fruit juice. Today, ice cream has become one of the most popular desserts in the world.

Another favourite indulgence all over the world is Callebaut chocolate. Made in Belgium from bean to chocolate, it has fantastic workability and a potential to present heavenly confectionery, pastry and… ice cream.
