Schakolad Chocolate is Made Fresh

The Schakolad Story

Schakolad (pronounced shaq-oh-LAD) - a combination of "Schaked" and "Chocolate" - is a name associated with three generations of chocolate making. Baruch Schaked, co-founder of Schakolad, has been a chocolate maker since 1969. He began his career as a chocolatier in Argentina while working for his father-in-law, Gustavo Bar, who was the owner of one of South America`s largest chocolate factories.

Mr. Schaked traveled extensively throughout Europe to participate in courses and seminars at prestigious schools where he mastered the art of chocolate making. His education and passion paid off in the form of numerous first place awards for his scrumptious, handmade truffles at the world renowned Fontainebleau Chocolate Festival.

And, that is just the beginning of the story.

The Schaked`s chocolate adventure really got started when Baruch Schaked announced that he was selling his chocolate shop in South Florida in order to retire. His son, Edgar, determined to keep the family`s passion alive, scrapped his engineering career to continue the family legacy. In 1995, the first Schakolad Chocolate Factory opened in Winter Park, Florida. In 1999, Schakolad began franchising their unique system, creating national and international awareness as the producers of fine quality chocolates using only the highest quality ingredients.

Although recognition is spreading, Schakolad is determined to stay true to the nostalgia and personal service of the corner family owned chocolateria by making their chocolates fresh, on premises, at each location.

What Does Kosher Mean?

The word kosher is a translation of the Hebrew word meaning "fit" or "proper." It refers to foods that meet the dietary requirements of Jewish Law. Whether a product is kosher depends on the source of the ingredients and the status of the equipment it is produced on. Kosher certification is the guarantee that the food meets kosher requirements. The process of certification does not involve "blessing" the food; rather, it involves examining the ingredients used to make the food, scrutinizing the process by which the food is prepared, and periodically inspecting the processing facilities to make sure that kosher standards are maintained.
