A bit of history about Chocolate Corona

In 1933 the National Company of Chocolates became a shareholder of the Galletas Noel Factorys. Subsequently, with the acquisition of Chocolates Chaves and Equitativa, Santa Fe and Tequendama, they began to consolidate themselves in the market, and, finally, they positioned the Corona, Diana and Tesalia brand.

During the 60’s, an active program to promote cocoa cultivation and diversification of its production began in the Company. In 1961 the emblematic Jet chocolate bar was born, the first chocolate candy manufactured industrially in the country, and together with it they created the first album with its collections of stickers. In 1968 they released the Natural History album, which became an important educational text for many generations.

In 2017, the largest solar roof in Antioquia and the second in the country was installed in their Rionegro Factory. Now the chocolates, nuts and cereal bars that are produced today in the Rionegro Factory have an additional ingredient: the energy of the sun. Thus, converting their pioneer plant into clean and environmentally friendly production in Colombia.
