La Maison Belge, a piece of Belgium in Barcelona

Written by Adriana

Barcelona is a multicultural city, much closer to Europe than to the capital of Spain. Is characterized by hosting workers and entrepreneurs who come from other European countries, and decide to settle in Barcelona attracted by its weather, its cosmopolitan environment and the job opportunities that it offers. They easily integrate into Barcelona’s daily life, but they like to keep their roots through the cuisine and traditions of their country. For all nostalgic Belgians who want to buy products from their country of origin and to feel “at home” for a while through their taste, they can go to La Maison Belge. Also the local inhabitants of the city, of course, can buy typical food, crafts, imported drinks, decorative objects, etc., all coming directly from this west of Europe country.

La Maison Belge, located in the Gracia district of Barcelona (C/ Montseny 17), opened its doors in 2004 by Cédrick Geluk and Jean-Marie Gerson, in order to promote the best Belgian products in Spain. Over time, it was consolidated as the only company in Spain that imported that kind of typical products, such as chocolate, cheese, and the famous Belgian beers, and has been growing and opening franchises all over the Spanish territory: in Tenerife, Madrid and Seville. The Belgian importation market for bars, restaurants or persons, appeared in Spain as a virgin market without competitors and, therefore, with great potential, as has been demonstrated until today.

On the shelves of La Maison Belge you will find over 200 different types of Belgian beers, the best chocolate varieties, cheeses of all kinds, waffles, biscuits, merchandising, Belgian designer decorative items, traditional drinks of the country, etc. All of the highest quality and always in contact with the consumer demand. Another principle governing this business is the commitment to the environment; they offer bags made from potato starch, 100% biodegradable and they also sell decorative objects made of recycled materials at the store.
