Bridor, a leader in European croissants, pastries, savory bistro items and breads for the US foodservice and retail markets, announces the launch of The Chocolatine made with Ghirardelli. This pastry features three rich and creamy semi-sweet chocolate bars – more than any competitive chocolate croissant on the market – enveloped in Bridor’s acclaimed flaky and light croissant dough.

The Chocolatine comes pre egg-washed and ready-to-bake and contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Its natural, fresh ingredients – including pure butter, whole eggs and fresh milk – deliver unsurpassed flavor and quality.

“Our collaboration with Ghirardelli enabled us to create a product like no other on the market,” said Olivier Morel, Senior VP, Sales and Marketing, Bridor. “It has enormous consumer appeal and sales potential, which we are supporting with superior customer service.”

Bridor’s Chocolatine speaks to the company’s commitment of bringing European craftsmanship to U.S. consumers.

“When we align with another brand it is only with one hundred percent confidence that they will meet our exacting standards and deliver a high quality chocolate experience,” said Christopher Eklem, VP Professional Products at Ghirardelli. “With Bridor’s centuries-old baking techniques and customer commitment, it was an easy decision for us to agree to the launch of Chocolatine made with Ghirardelli.”
