Kwatta has been a fully Belgian brand name for chocolate products since 1972. It was previously a Belgian-Dutch brand of chocolate, produced in Breda and Bois-d'Haine (since 1913), with chocolate from a Surinamese cocoa plantation of the same name. The Kwatta company was founded in 1883 by P. de Bondt and Jozef Gustaaf van Emden.
The history of Kwatta has its origins in Suriname. There the Dutchman Gustaaf van Emden owned a cocoa plantation in the neighbourhood of Paramaribo in the mid-nineteenth century that was called Kwatta.
The expression "All eyes are focused on Kwatta", which was very familiar, is from the past and is not used that much anymore. It comes from this chocolate brand. The expression means that everyone focuses their attention on a specific point or topic. In North Brabant and Gelderland, the word Kwatta, especially by the elderly, is still used when chocolate is meant.
