Based in Lyon since 1897, in this emblematic region for French gastronomy, Chocolats Voisin specialises in producing chocolates, confectionery and exclusive coffees.


The company is an important part of the city's cultural heritage. It manufactures certain products that are synonymous with the region, particularly the Coussins de Lyon, which they invented, and Quenelles, which are part of the National Cultural Heritage list. These sweet treats are manufactured using the freshest products using artisan techniques that can be quite complex, such as "candissage", which is a slow and delicate operation that is integral to the manufacture of Coussins.

The company welcomes customers at a number of stores in Lyon, of which several have special historic significance. The company has been awarded the medal of the city of Lyon and has received a number of quality awards for its products.
