About Duc de Praslin chocolateries / Gallothai
Paul Graindorge began to study the craft of becoming a chocolatier under the tutelage of Mister Denis, a well-known Belgian chocolatier. His idea was to bring Belgian chocolate to Asia. Graindorge found a Thai partner. They set up a factory in Bangkok and together they introduced Thailand to the world of Belgian chocolates. In 1993, they opened a small kiosk in the Sogo at Amarin Plaza in which they began offering Belgian chocolates on a seasonal basis. Soon, the popularity of Duc de Praslin Thailand began to soar. Paul’s son, Jean-Louis Graindorge, soon joined the business and nurtured its growth to include two shops in Bangkok and one shop in Pattaya. The Thai public has become enamored by the rich flavor of Belgian chocolate and Duc de Praslin has enjoyed stunning success. Many 5-star hotels around Thailand now feature Duc de Praslin chocolates in their establishments. The increasing demand for Belgian chocolates has meant that they are rapidly outgrowing their present chocolate-making facilities and are making plans to expand. Duc de Praslin has always prided itself on using the finest local ingredients in its creations. They are a pioneer of premium specialty chocolate with over 20 years of experience catering to the Thai market and offer their customers only the highest quality products with passion and authenticity. They stay true to the Belgian spirit by importing the finest raw material directly from Belgium.
