Jean-Talon Chocolate

Jean-Talon Chocolate

Founded in Montreal in the early 1980s, Jean-Talon Chocolate originally specialized in the production of generic hollow chocolate Easter figurines, in various weight categories. Since 1986, Jean-Talon Chocolate has been located at its current site on Thimens Boulevard in Saint-Laurent (Montreal).

Following the acquisition by Regal Confections, an expansion plan was put in place. The addition of different production lines allowed Jean-Talon Chocolate to add advent calendars, mini eggs, chocolate balls, solid figurines, colored chocolates (lollipops and figurines) and large wrapped eggs containing a surprise toy (Super Egg) to its product offering.

Today, Jean-Talon Chocolate operates out of a ± 150,000 square foot facility, which accommodates the company's offices as well as the production and warehouse operations.

With 7 storage tanks holding a total of 500,000 pounds of liquid chocolate, Jean-Talon Chocolate can produce a wide variety of everyday and seasonal products for Canada and the United States, under its own brand (Jean-Talon Chocolate), private labels and licenses. Each year, more than 3 million kilograms of liquid chocolate are converted into finished goods.
