About Michel and his Chocolate
Michel Cluizel has been a manufacturer of high-quality chocolate in the French town of Damville in Normandy since 1947
The Michel Cluizel company began when Michel Cluizel's parents March and Marcelle Cluizel expanded their pastry business into making chocolate from their own family kitchen. Later in 1947 Michel became an apprentice in his parent's business.
Their first export order came in 1981 as they dispatched products to the USA and they opened their first shop in Paris in 1987.
The company has 200 employees, including the four children of the owner and name sake of the company. Michel Cluizel owns a store on Rue Saint-Honore in Paris. In August 2004, the company opened a subsidiary in the United States. However, one is no longer able to order from the company's web site in the United States. It is unclear why the company has ceased selling chocolate products through its American web site.
