Ibarra Chocolate, making genuine chocolate for 95 years
Who founded Chocolate Ibarra?
It all begins with the vision of Don Camilo Gómez Ibarra, born in 1879 to an agricultural family, a noble activity to which Camilo dedicated the first stage of his life. His dedication forged him as a merchant and businessman. In 1899, he married Doña María Ruiz, starting the family that became the founder of one of the most representative companies in Mexico.
Doña María began, in 1925, to make homemade table chocolate to give to her family and her friends, having a resounding success among them. Realizing the quality and flavor of the product and the pleasant acceptance of others, Don Camilo and Doña María decide to take a step towards marketing their chocolate. Here was the moment when our sweet story was born.
Always maintaining the concept of 100% natural and Mexican homemade chocolate, Don Camilo decided in 1930 to industrialize the business. He bought machines to meet the increasing demand for table chocolate and make it reach all homes in Jalisco. Thanks to the continuous growth, his children Guillermo, Gustavo, and Ernesto got involved.
In 1948, Don Camilo negotiated the first export of his table chocolate to the United States, making it the first selling Mexican chocolate outside the country.
Don Camilo died in 1955 at the age of 76, setting the roots of table chocolate in Jalisco and Mexico. Likewise, the beginning of one of the most important companies in the western region.
Since its beginning and to this day, Chocolate Ibarra represents the true Genuine Chocolate par excellence. Proudly present on Mexican tables, providing tradition, flavor, and passion in each sip.
