Chocolate & Co.

In 2007, VANGUARD endeavored to establish a premium chocolates and confectionary sweets manufacturing plant in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The vision for the project came as VANGUARD identified a gap in the current regional market for private label premium chocolate products. Simultaneously, VANGUARD initiated links with Mr. Bassem Al-Oubairi, a chocolatier with a deep family heritage in premium chocolates manufacturing as well as Janahi Sweets W.L.L. a renowned Bahraini based premium local sweets and chocolate retailer. Chocolate & Co. Company W.L.L. was launched in April 2008 and began production operations in July 2008.
