Bruno Le Derf

MOF 2007 Chocolatier

Bruno Le Derf began his pâtisserie apprenticeship at the age of 15 years before joining the “Compagnons du devoir” (French craftsmens’guild which trains apprentices) on the french roads during 7 years.
After time spent in Brussels,

where he perfected his knowledge of chocolate, he took off to Japan. He spent 15 years in his adopted country and became notably Technical Director of the “Cordon Bleu” school. He has been acclaimed Best Chocolate Confectioner of France in 2007.

Returned to France in 2012, he set up in Brittany and opened 4 chocolate confectionery shops and a Patisserie-Tea room. The Manufacture CLUIZEL is proud to sponsor the “Concours l’Elite” of which Bruno is founder.

“During my entire professional career, the Manufacture CLUIZEL has always been synonymous of quality. First Michel and now Marc, have kept faith with this charter of noble products with their unique and genuine taste.

Today, set up on my own account since 6 years, the Manufacture CLUIZEL is not just a simple supplier, it is an indispensable partner in my profession of chocolate confectioner.

The most important thing for me is that the Manufacture CLUIZEL has remained a family business, and where the priority is the quality of the product, not the volume.

As it is the case for their Plantation Chocolates, each product must have the required aromatic profile, which can take several years to achieve. The variety of the Plantation Chocolates (dark, milk-whenever the aromatic notes enable it-and cocoa paste) is a true added value for us professionals.

We can thus customize our recipes to the delight of our customers.

All the Manufacture team members, as well as Marc Cluizel, are always attentive to their clients in order to expand their ranges at the same pace as the evolution of our profession.”
