DEEP C Industrial Zones is a Belgian developer and operator of an industrial zone and port infrastructure cluser in Haiphong and Quang Ninh province – the most dynamic growth region in North Vietnam
Our story began in 1997 with the development of DEEP C Haiphong I (formerly known as Dinh Vu Industrial Zone), a collaboration between Belgian investor Rent-A-Port and Haiphong People’s Committee.
Over the past 24 years, it has constantly expanded to three industrial zones in Haiphong and two in Quang Ninh, forming DEEP C industrial zone cluster covering 3,400 hectares at the epicentre of the region’s manufacturing and infrastructure boom, with close proximity to the international airport, deep seaport and extended expressway network.
Belvie Chocolate was cofounded end 2015 by Ms. Jannie Ha Tran (Vietnamese)and Marc Vanborren (Belgian). In the beginning, we made our own chocolate just at home until we wanted to share our passion with the rest of the world, and that is when Belvie was born. Our chocolate is a combination of Belgian know-how, in-depth chocolate knowledge, incredibly self-sourced beans form Vietnam and our love for Vietnam, farmers, nature and chocolate.
Belvie’s chocolate is handcrafted in small batches to main quality – for us, it’s all about the details with no cutting corners. The beans are stonegrinded and conched for several days. We only use the fine trinitario cacao beans, which are purchased directly from planters in different regions of Vietnam to enhance the local economy for our farmers. Other than making delicious chocolate of high quality, we also want to contribute to the preservation of cacao trees in Vietnam. Belviedo this by encouraging and supporting farmers by offering them a fair price for the beans they are sourcing.
Our mission is to make fine tree to bar, bean to bar chocolate with as ingredient only cacao beans and cane sugar and some cacao butter from the same origin. We are not using Soya or any other lecithin. Regarding the process of making chocolate we want to make chocolate from each terroir in Vietnam. We found the terroir is very important, each with its own unique flavor and bouquet reflecting the particular conditions of soil, terrain and micro-climate that characterize the different cacao-producing regions in Vietnam from which we source our beans. Growing conditions vary widely from region to region, greatly influencing the flavor and character of the final product.
