Ovidias, where tradition and innovation meet.

The name...

Ovidias – or Ovidius as he is called in Latin – was known in ancient Rome for his impertinent verses. He was a real bon-vivant in all aspects of life.

He spoiled his senses with the finest wines and the most delicious food. Unfortunately, he was born a few centuries too early to get to know the pleasures of traditional chocolates.

His preference for everything that is good, inspired us to name our brand after him.

... Ovidias is famous far and wide because of its fresh Belgian chocolates with home-made filling, with a full and creamy taste. The filling is prepared traditionally with only the very best ingredients.

Real chocolate lovers choose Ovidias Belgian chocolates because their unique taste experience and freshness definitely stand out.

History

The company Ovidias was founded in 1978 by late Frans Vangertruyden and his family; a family tradition that goes back to 1932 with the foundation of a wholesaler in confectionery and the manufacturing of liquors. Initially Ovidias made only traditional chocolates for specialised chocolate shops in Belgium and abroad.

A strong specialised team was formed thanks to the know-how built up over the years. We master the nature of chocolate and how it is processed into the smallest details.

High-end processes

High-end processes

The Ovidias production department, with a surface area of about 3000m², now has the most high-end production processes which are constantly innovated .

However, in its endeavour to provide top quality products, Ovidias never lost sight of the consumer experience. The taste and enjoyment of the very best Belgian chocolates is always what matters most.

Packaging

Not only the processes define the chocolate experience. That is why, in the past years, besides the quality of its chocolates, Ovidias also paid a lot of attention to the packaging.

Every chocolate is individually wrapped in a freshpack. We think you should be the first one to touch these delicious chocolates. That sounds about right, doesn’t it?

The chocolate freshpack also offers several advantages:

  • extremely suited to store fresh chocolates at refrigerator temperature
  • protects the chocolate against negative influences like condensation and bacteria


Our chocolates should be stored refrigerated between 0 and +7°C. This is how the taste is conserved and the shelf life extended, even for our cream chocolates.


Upon delivery the consumer receives a fully conditioned product. This contributes to the quality and freshness of these extraordinary tasty Belgian chocolates. This is the only packaging concept worldwide which guarantees that you can taste the full extent of these delicious Belgian chocolates.

Because you should be the first one to touch this precious chocolate”
