Walloon investors join the ranks of Galler

reading time 2'

They’re Walloons, they love chocolate and they’ve decided to support our chocolaterie’s numerous projects. We’re pleased to introduce our new investors to you!

Nice ideas are not enough to transform the Galler chocolaterie into a successful, ethical organisation, respectful of human rights and of our planet. More practically, investments are needed as well.

In order to gather the necessary funds, the Chocolaterie has decided to raise its capital by €7 million and to call on Walloon investors. This plan was achieved thanks to the support of our private main investor.

Who are the new Galler investors?

4 Walloon investors, 5 members of Galler’s executive board and 2 institutional investors (Noshaq and Invest for Jobs) have placed their trust in the Galler project.

About the 3 Walloon entrepreneurs who support our chocolaterie…
