Half-Century of Excellence:
Alpina was founded in 1970 by brothers Nabil and Rafic Kronfol. Benefiting from their firsthand experience of fine chocolate-making gained from living in Switzerland, they put principle to practice, responding to the need for world-class quality chocolate in Lebanon and the region. Their journey has been the expression of a mission fulfilled: providing superior, unique, consistent chocolate and ice cream.
It all began in a modest shop in the heart of Beirut and a small factory where Alpina;s craftsmen began fashioning their creations, driven by dedication to the art of chocolate. It wasn't long before the name Alpina resounded all over Lebanon. Given the high quality of cocoa beans and ingredients used and Alpina's acquired experience in chocolate manufacturing, the brand attracted customers from every corner of the country. Our collection further expanded to include several other items, catering for special occasions such as weddings, graduations, newborn celebrations and others.
In the early 1990's, soon after the end of Lebanon's civil war, another successful chapter began for Alpina. With growing demand from its customers, Alpina expanded to cover most of Lebanon's regions through branches and points of sale. Now run by the second Kronfol generation, Alpina draws on its heritage to preserve its founders' legacy of quality and innovation.
From the onset, the founders' vision was long-term: A family business that would cultivate a passion for chocolate in general and for Alpina in particular. For some, chocolate is a product. For us, it is a passion... an ode to the palate and a presence that commands respect. Blending the right flavor with the right consistency and texture are not choices but prerequisites.
To the benefit of chocolate lovers everywhere, Alpina is a global brand in the making, a brand kknown and loved throughout Lebanon and beyond. Alpina is committed to continue providing your homes, parties, special occasions, and corporate events with the best of Swiss and Belgian quality chocolates infused with oriental fillings and flavors. This is in addition to bringing you a rich selection of dragees, all-natural ice cream flavors, and sophisticated signature giftware.
