Our Golden Heritage

Originally from Germany, the pioneering Strubens developed a taste for discovery and adventure in the New World when Johnas Struben emigrated to South Africa with his young family. Early mining expeditions by his sons led to the establishment of the “Confidence Reef” gold mine and the family were at the forefront of the prospecting revolution.


That Struben spirit still inspires today as the latest generation continues that journey, sourcing the finest cocoa from around the world to create our unique Connoisseur Chocolate Collection.
