Josef Zotter built his reputation by exploring exquisite handmade chocolate and taste combinations that had never existed. Pumpkin Seed Marzipan followed creations like Hemp Mocha, and soon after that an own chocolate factory was established, which has since been transformed by the chocolate explorer and taste artist Josef Zotter into an empire of indulgence.

Asides from the love of experimentation, Zotter's creations are also driven by a high demand for quality. Organic and Fair Trade are implemented without compromise, as is the Pan-European unique “bean-to-bar” philosophy in which the chocolate factory production starts directly from the bean. The results are multiple prize-winning product varieties with packaging illustrated by artist Andreas H. Gratze who is a close friend.
