Go and experience the taste of the legendary confectionery company, Fazer. What would be better than spending a fun day at the Fazer Experience Visitor Centre where you can enjoy Fazer with all of your five senses!

Legendary Fazer

Fazer is the leading confectionery company in Finland with almost over 130 years of history. A young 25-years-old bold entrepreneur Karl Fazer opened a French-Russian café in Helsinki at Kluuvikatu 3 already in 1891. It can be said that it marked beginning of Finnish confectionery industry, and the rest is history.

Nowadays the brand is well-known worldwide, and their products have become classics both in Finland and also abroad. Chocolates, sweets, candies, bread and bakery products are just some of the Fazer products that people really love. Their flagship product is the famous Karl Fazer Milk Chocolate. It’s also known as the Fazer Blue, and it has been the number one choice of chocolate-lovers for decades.
