Welcome to Australia’s first online chocolate store.  It’s the place chocolate connoisseurs go without leaving their door. Vanderwee.com.au sells artisan made chocolates from Belgium online since 2001.

Vanderwee Chocolates® was founded in Sydney by Hendrik and Hilde Vanderwee Rosseel in 1995. They started importing and retailing on Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall introducing hand-crafted Belgian chocolates, made by independent artisans in Belgium, imported by express air.

Their approach didn’t go unnoticed by Sydney’ food editor: this small chocolate boutique received 40 write-ups during their first couple of years alone.


 The awareness, spreading, rapidly was even further accelerated with the advent of the Internet and, as their online shop took off in 2001 the Vanderwee’s concentrated more on their online services.


Nowadays 25% of their customers are overseas based. Good taste it appears, knows no boundaries.

A new chapter is emerging as they are moving to online sales only from March 2014 from their new premises in the lower Blue Mountains. Where they will be able to extend their product lines to other gourmet food products.


At no stage will this affect their delivery services as courier pick-ups will happen from 04:30 AM right until 05:00 PM on any given business day offering their customer a much larger time frame to get their orders out te door and on its way. Sydney metro orders are usually delivered within 3 hours. Interstate orders go straight from Australia Post's Nepean Business Centre to Sydney Airport.
