Artisan chocolatiers making luxury chocolate, now there is a subject to salivate over. We will be introducing some of the chocolatiers who produce such amazing confectionery creations. In this article, we will take a look at six of the top UK artisan chocolatiers.
Glenshiel in the Scottish Highlands is home to Chocolates of Glenshiel which was founded by Finlay MacDonald when he was just 16 years old. Each chocolate is handcrafted and only the finest Scottish flavours such as Isle of Skye sea salt make it into their delicious chocolates.
All of their packaging is 100% plastic-free and they try to use ingredients which have been sourced as locally as possible in order to keep their carbon footprint as low as it can be.
Producers of Nono chocolates and purveyors of anti-allergen foods, the Functional Food Co is a small family business whose whole ethos is based around trying to create healthy, ethical food for people who can struggle to find something suitable.
They create low FODMAP diet foods for people who are battling IBD as well as many allergy-free foods that omit the 12 most common foods or ingredients that people are allergic to. Their selection of superfood raw chocolates is a particular favourite.
These popular chocolatiers from the heart of West Sussex won many local and national awards for their outstanding range of ethical, organic chocolates. Using 100% Fairtrade chocolate and plastic free packaging, their chocolate is single origin and of superb quality.
Their range extends beyond bars and into exquisite truffles, big fat milk, dark and white chocolate buttons, intensely rich and dark chocolate brownies, cookies, gift boxes and so much more.
Committed to fighting against the notion that anything that tastes good has to be unhealthy, g.org.e has been making healthy and delicious chocolates using only raw, organic superfoods.
Lucy, the founder of this Hereford-based family business, couldn’t find chocolates that fit the bill so she simply decided to make her own. All of her chocolates are freshly made in small batches and packaged in beautiful, compostable packaging. Now you can g.org.e without the guilt.
Hailing from Badsey in Worcertershire, ChoColours is the brainchild of Mariusz who is a fully-trained chef. He was looking at teaching others how to develop their pastry skills but an order for custom chocolates was to change his life and ChoColours was born.
