Leonidas Belgian Chocolates are made without Palm Oil
From 3 August 2003, a European Directive has allowed chocolate manufacturers to use vegetable fats (instead of cocoa butter) in their chocolates, albeit under certain very strict conditions. This Directive caused a lot of controversy among manufacturers and consumers, but Leonidas has a very clear and simple position on this issue. Leonidas only uses 100% cocoa butter in its chocolates and fillings. The statement that "Leonidas is 100% pure cocoa butter... and 100% quality" is more true now than ever.
