Match.com, the online singles dating site that holds the Guinness World Record for the largest number of users in the world, including 800,000 users in Spain, is celebrating Valentine’s Dayby winning its second Guinness Record for the creation of the world’s heaviest chocolate construction: a seven ton heart. The 5 meter wide by 4 meter high by 0.7 meter thick heart was created by the Spanish PR & marketing agency MARCO de Comunicación and dedicated by Rocío Madrid.

The heart is located on the patio of the Hard Rock Café at El Paseo de la Castellana 2, on the corner of Plaza Colón. The heart will remain on display from Friday, February 13th until next Thursday, February 19th. Afterwards it will be divided up among NGOs, the Food Bank, and the social welfare organization Solidarios para el Desarrollo to be distributed to homeless people and other disadvantaged groups. The construction of the enormous chocolate heart took a 10-person team led by the famous Catalan confectioner Luis Morera 5 days to complete.

LUIS MORERA, MENTOR TO MANY

Chocolat Factory is sweeping across the market. Ever since Michel Laline made his debut in the
world of cocoa and started his own chocolate factory, his business has never ceased growing
and winning awards. The most recent OPENINGS have been in Valencia, Toledo, Girona, and
Palma de Mallorca.
BARCELONA.
Like movie director Tim Burton, who resuscitated that classic of children’s literature Charlie
and the Chocolate Factory from the imagination of writer Roald Dahl and turned it into a box
office hit, Michel Laline has transformed the dream of Burton and Dahl into reality. A Belgian
by birth, the master chocolate maker has made Barcelona his home for the past 25 years.
Chocolat Factory is presently one of the largest factories dedicated exclusively to creating and
producing diverse products made of chocolate. This factory now bakes 340 kilos of chocolate
products a year.
Luis Morera, Uño, and Morato, his mentors
Although Laline’s original vocations were architecture and design, one day this Belgian
artist decided to take a 180 degree turn in his life: he abandoned his studies, took a one
year sabbatical, and decided that chocolate was “his thing”. Laline thus decided to learn the
technique from the greatest chocolate masters in the world: Luis Morera, Claudio Uño, and
Ramón Morato.

Prince of Asturias Award
This ability to create combined with the finest cocoa beans in the world (from Java, Venezuela,
Ghana, Papua, New Guinea, Grenada, and Sao Thomé) has earned the brand numerous
national and international awards. The most recent accolade was the Prince of Asturias Award
for Business Excellence in the field of design, which Chocolat Factory received last December
12th.
