Michel Cluizel has been a manufacturer of chocolate in the French town of Damville in Normandy since 1948.[1]


The company began when Michel Cluizel's parents March and Marcelle Cluizel expanded their pastry business into making chocolate from their own family kitchen. Later in 1948, Michel became an apprentice in his parents' business.

Their first export order came in 1981 as they dispatched products to the United States and they opened their first shop in Paris in 1987.

The company has 200 employees, including the four children of the owner and name sake of the company. Michel Cluizel owns a store on Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris. In August 2004, the company opened a subsidiary in the United States.
