One of Malta’s favourite confectioneries is set to take the gift of chocolate to the next level this Christmas, with a range from top Italian chocolatier Bodrato.

Café Santa Lucia will offer a selection of mouth-watering chocolates from Bodrato at Level 0 inside The Point in Sliema – the same level as the neighbouring pjazza – while a range will also be available at Café Santa Lucia Wine Gourmet and Gifts in Attard.  

“We are delighted to bring Bodrato Cioccolato to The Point this Christmas,” says Café Santa Lucia Managing Director, Joseph Buttigieg. “The Bodrato brand stands for the ambition, the passion and the innovation that its expert chocolatiers put into their creations – values that we also live by at Café Santa Lucia. Bodrato’s range of products offers a unique chocolate experience, making them the ideal personal or corporate festive gift.”

Café Santa Lucia’s partnership with Bodrato brings together two leading confectionery brands with the same standards of uncompromising quality. 

Born in Luciano Bodrato’s laboratory in Genoa in 1943, Bodrato Cioccolato has refined and developed the art of chocolate-making through the decades. Today, from the ‘Capital of Chocolate’ Novi Ligure, the brand gleans from the ancient traditions of Piedmont to carefully prepare the best interpretations of classics such as hazelnut bars, boeri (dark chocolates with cherry liqueur praline centres) or giandujotti. Like Café Santa Lucia, Bodrato is also known for its contemporary confectionery innovations such as matcha tea pralines and Maldon salt cremini. 

With quality, biodiversity and freshness at its core, Bodrato only uses the finest raw materials and ingredients available on the market, such as Garbagna cherries, Piedmont IGP hazelnuts and mint of Pancalieri, producing small batches to ensure the maximum freshness and flavour of the finished product.

Great corporate gifts

The careful selection of raw materials, combined with Bodrato’s unique packaging and signature attention to detail, also make this gift of fine chocolate tempting and exciting. Businesses worldwide choose exclusive Bodrato gifts to set them apart, selecting from a wide range of products that includes both the most traditional and the most prestigious, with limited edition gift boxes designed to create an unforgettably delicious Christmas.
