On May 9, 1845, Johannes Heinrich Petrus Stubbe established Stubbe Chocolates in the northern German city of Meppen, laying the foundation for six generations of chocolate making. In 1989 Heinrich Josef Stubbe started a new chapter in the family business by moving the company to Canada. Today he and two of his three children, Daniel and Anne, continue their family's passion with boutique shops in Ottawa and Toronto. At the Stubbe Chocolates shops we invite you to experience truffles, tortes, pastries and sweets, all created on the premises, according to the high standards of the German Konditorei. We are very proud and happy to say that Stubbe Chocolates is the oldest family owned and operated business in Ottawa.
