All Guylian chocolates are produced in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, where Guylian Master Chocolatiers produce up to 75 tonnes of chocolate daily in a production area measuring 27.000 m². This allows the Guylian group a worldwide non-consolidated turnover of 80 million euros (2015). In turn, this ensures that Guylian is one of Belgium’s leading chocolate manufacturers, with a team of 250 employees and sales oﬃces in the UK, Germany/Austria, Spain/Portugal and the USA.
Guylian has been Project Seahorse’s loyal partner and main sponsor since 1999. Project Seahorse is small yet mighty team of people that makes a big difference to conservation and sustainable use of the world’s seahorses and their coastal marine communities.
In total, Guylian has provided € 1.5 million in support of its programs. Besides Guylian’s financial contribution the company also helps spread the word about seahorses and conservation on the millions of chocolate boxes sold worldwide every year.
Guylian shares in many of Project Seahorse’ biggest conservation successes, from the creation of 36 no-take marine protected areas to the initiation of the first global export controls for marine fishes and the creation of a bold new citizen science venture: the app and website iSeahorse. This ‘citizen science’ tool allows anyone to upload a sighting of a seahorse in the wild and thus provide Project Seahorse with vital data to improve seahorse conservation.
Our long term engagement to Project Seahorse was recognized in 2015 with a Corporate Social Responsibility Award, handed out by the Royal Belgian Committee for Distribution.
