Thomas Haas

Thomas Haas seems to be equally known for his handmade chocolates, truffles, and pastries, as he is for the packages that wrap-up these mouth-watering sweets. German-born, Vancouver-based Haas produces gorgeous — and addictive — chocolates, cakes, and cookies using high-quality ingredients sourced from around the world.

In addition, Haas boasts an impressive list of Canadian-sourced products like British Colombian wine and, of course, oak barrel aged maple syrup from Quebec. The packaging, like the sweets themselves, is bold and striking, smartly designed with a strong modern touch. So too is his retail boutique on the North Shore of Vancouver where Haas-obsessed Canadians regularly get their fix.
