In the old town of Vevey, a new venue dedicated to Swiss artisan chocolate-making opened its doors in 2015, with a shop offering delicious confections and a chocolate exhibition for visitors to enjoy. Groups can participate in workshops and courses led by professionals – booking required.
For 20 years, Blaise and Aude Poyet delighted lovers of confectionary in their sweet shop on Rue du Théâtre, in the old town of Vevey. Their chocolate creations and passion for this emblematic Swiss product particularly attracted loyal customers as well as passing visitors and groups.
In 2015, the Confiserie Poyet went into partnership with the Läderach chocolate family and became “Läderach – Swiss chocolatiers”. The focus is still on traditional and fresh artisan products and the fully refurbished Poyet premises on Rue du Théâtre now offer four chocolate-related attractions: a shop, a chocolate exhibition, a workshop and a classroom. Available for group bookings, the last two offer hands-on activities, led by a professional and are particularly suited to corporate events and staff incentives.
