The last name Jolonch, from Peramola, has been linked to chocolate since 1770. This was one of the first brands of manufacturers and marketers of this product in Agramunt, the first in Europe and the second in the world. The family business was passed from generation to generation until recently, when the family decided to abandon chocolate production. It is at this time that Mr. Ángel Velasco acquired the firm at the beginning of 2013 with the aim of giving it continuity and projection with the development of new products recently presented to the market, highlighting grated hot chocolate.
Chocolate Jolonch has been characterized by the manufacture of Xocolata a la Pedra, considered the autochthonous variety of Agramunt. Currently they also make other varieties that complement the offer.
Their production has always been artisanal and today they still use traditional methods and the same old machines. All this makes the factory itself a true museum of this activity.
