Every year, at least 11 million pieces of gourmet chocolate are sourced from around the world to be served in Emirates’ premium cabins, in addition to a variety of chocolate desserts and treats in all classes. 

In first and business class, Emirates lets its customers sample pralines and bonbons from eight gourmet chocolatiers from six chocolate-loving nations. The airline said the brands were selected to give its customers a variety of premium chocolates from around the world including local home-grown brands from the UAE, where the airline is based. Each chocolate brand is on board for three months before a new selection is introduced to delight frequent flyers.

This includes: Godiva from Belgium, an Emirates staple on board for over 20 years; Valrhona from France, who have been producing chocolates since 1922; Canonica from Switzerland, who provide handmade Swiss chocolates; Pacari from Ecuador, an organic and vegan-friendly alternative; Neuhaus from Belgium, the inventor of the Belgian Praline, among others.
