“Only by using the best will you obtain the best” - Loacker, the leading provider of classic Italian wafers, has been operating by that very belief for almost a hundred years now. Established by Alfons Loacker in Bolzano, Italy, the brand was as close to a childhood dream come true as it gets! Alfons worked in a little pastry shop for years since he was a young boy, and thanks to his dedication, he ended up buying that very shop in 1925 - that was the beginning of the company that was about to revolutionize Italian confectionary!
The first packaged Loacker wafers were set into production in 1940, and a nationwide success followed close behind. By the time they got their first automated wafer oven in 1967 and managed to manufacture enough product for a worldwide market, Loacker was a household name in Italy. The rest of the world recognized the brand’s irrefutable genius soon after.
Loacker’s executives firmly believe to this day that goodness is a choice, and every one of us has a responsibility to give back to others as well as to our planet. That’s precisely why so much attention is paid to the responsible sourcing of their ingredients and the production’s overall sustainability. Loacker’s Italian wafers are made from a combination of both Ecuadorian and Ivorian (Ivory Coast) cocoa. Due to the floral and fruity aroma of the former and the darker, earthier aroma of the latter, the final product ends up tasting like every chocoholic’s dream - with just the right amount of bitter, sweet, salty, floral, deep & rich notes. When combined with Loacker’s locally farmed 100% Italian hazelnuts, the flavors go from great to heavenly, not to mention completely irresistible!
