Cornell Idu, our Belgian Certified chocolatier, holds over 30 years of experience and bring this mastery to every recipe, both traditional and innovative.

While maintaining the original recipes of Charles Rogers' most iconic pieces, today our master chocolatier, Cornell Idu, leads our inspiration for new products. Certified in Belgium, Cornell’s over 30 years of experience, combined with his natural curiosity and artistic creativity, challenges our concepts of what can be created with chocolate. Constantly researching new techniques, testing new recipes, and combining unique flavours, Cornell strives for perfection in all things chocolate, and his eager taste testing team is always happy to help!

Of course, Cornell is very committed to our history as well, ensuring that we remain faithful to the legacy of Charles and Leah Rogers in everything we do. The original recipes for our Victoria Creams remains untouched, though exciting new seasonal variation such as Lemon or Candy Cane add a new twist to old favourites.

Our Expertise - Cornell
Steeped in tradition and rich with history

The first Rogers' chocolates were made in 1885 by Charles "Candy" Rogers in the back of his grocery store in Victoria, B.C. He quickly became a popular man. In 1891, Rogers expanded his chocolate operation to the company's current heritage storefront on Government Street in Victoria and the rest, as they say, is history.
