Perhaps one of the last places you would expect to find a chocolate factory is inside an unassuming red wooden house – but that is exactly where the Kultasuklaa chocolate factory is based. Located in Iittala, in the Häme region of southern Finland, Kultasuklaa is a Finnish family enterprise employing 11 people. It was originally founded by Ismo and Leila Salo, now a retired couple, who received training and learnt the secrets of chocolate making in Belgium. The town of Iittala is perhaps most known for its glassware, and the area has a longstanding history of handicraft.
