During the last years “Torrons Vicens” has acquired the following companies related to the Nougat and chocolate business. “Torrons Àngel&Lluch”, dedicated to the bio products, “Xocolata Jolonch”, a 1770’s Factory and specialized on Stone chocolate production and “Turrones Viar”.
There is a fifth Company specialized to the frozen chocolate truffle , cookies and frozen selected desserts already owned by the Velasco’s Family before they bought “Torrons Vicens” and is also a part of the group of companies.
Jolonch’s surname, originary from Peramola, is linked to the chocolate since 1770. This is one of the first brands of the manufacturesrs and chocolate traders in Agramunt, the first in Europe and the second worldwide. The family business was inheridet generatiton after generation until just recently, when the family decide to leave the chocolate production. Is just when Mr. Angel Velasco bought the Company beginning 2013 with the intention to provide continuity and projection with the new products development recently presented to the market, highlighting the grated chocolate for cup drink.
Jolonch’s chocolate has been known for the Stone chocolate production, considered the Agramunt’s local variety. Nowadays other varieties supplement the actual offer.
Its production has been always artisanal and today the traditional methods are still used with the same machines. Because all of these reasons the factory becomes an authentic museum of its activity.
