Choc Affair is the Chocolate Company Aiming to Change Lives Through Chocolate
At this year’s Home & Gift Buyers’ Festival in Harrogate, Choc Affair showed their beautiful brand of chocolate confectionery. Chief amongst their “best trade show moments” the company was proud to be included in Harrogate’s ‘Best of British trail’; an inclusion made possible since all their yummy products are handmade in York. Not only was this a nod to their British roots but also highlighted the company’s desire to do good on a local level and global level.
Choc Affair is a family run business based in the centre of York’s booming chocolate industry. The company specialises in creating delicious chocolate, which the whole family can indulge in. Behind the chocolate however is a grander dream, to “change lives though chocolate.
With family values at the heart of everything Choc Affair does, they strive to challenge the world’s view on how chocolate tastes, how it is made, and most importantly, how it affects the people involved in making it.
A Chocolate Company Doing Good
Beyond the trade show circuit Choc Affair are keen to do their British heritage proud; creating a unique chocolate company that not only makes delicious products but will also do some good via a strong company ethos.
Leading the way forward for all, Choc Affair aim to: create opportunities, support their community, use viably sourced cocoa, directly help cocoa farmers and use natural ingredients. They will also assist the UK’s economy by sourcing and buying from the UK wherever possible.
Strongly dedicated to investing in their community, Choc Affair offer work placements and employment to ex-offenders and young adults with disabilities; believing that by offering them the opportunity to develop real work life skills, they can help the individuals to overcome the barriers to employment.
A Worldwide Phenomenon
Choc Affair’s vision, to “change lives though chocolate” sees them pay close attention to every step of the chocolate making process. Enabling the company to make a difference to everyone involved in the creation and distribution of their products.
This community spirit stretches far beyond the UK too with the company aiding cocoa farmers in Huila, Colombia. Since investing in their community, Choc Affair has helped the farmers buy land and build a fermentation system to create a viable business.
Alongside this venture, Choc Affair is also running a charity called “Seeds of Hope Uganda”; changing the lives of children in Kumi, Uganda for the better. The charity helps local children access education, skills and trades. Help which in turn aids them to develop a strong future for themselves and their community.
