COCO Chocolatiers was created at the intersection of cocoa and creativity. This company is based out of Edinburgh, Scotland but sources its chocolate at origin, in Columbia. 96% of their chocolate is impact trade, meaning it meaningfully supports the communities where the cocoa is being sourced. At the same time, COCO Chocolatiers collaborates with artists around the world to create unique and eye-catching packaging.
MAKER STORY: COCO Chocolatier
COCO Chocolatier is comprised of a small but mighty team of nine core employees who are all committed to the pursuit of excellence at the intersection of chocolate and creativity. This team has been led by Calum Haggerty since 2013. Chocolatiers Ivan Zucca, Ho Kwok Hei, and Juan Vitale dream up delicious chocolate treats out of the company headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland. Beyond the core team, there is a large network of farmers and artists all working together to create unique and dynamic chocolates. Aside from COCO Chocolatiers making excellent quality goods, the truly special thing about this company is the values that guide how they are sourcing their cocoa.
In order to appreciate how COCO Chocolatier is different from larger chocolate companies, it is important to note the depth and detail COCO Chocolatiers has outlined with transparency how they source ‘at origin’. They collaborate with a Columbian company called Luker to connect with cacao suppliers across Columbia. Purchasing products that are finished at origin ensures that more wealth stays within the country and reaches the farmers who are farming and supplying the cacao. COCO Chocolatiers makes a point to regularly travel to Columbia to meet with farmers and they have detailed their travels around Columbia, meeting farmers.
Their commitment to ethically produced chocolate is just one half of what makes COCO Chocolatiers special. Creativity is the second cornerstone of this brand. COCO invites artists from around the world to collaborate on designs for their packaging. COCO Chocolatier artists each bring their own distinctive style and the result is a vibrant and diverse visual world of chocolate to explore.
So not only is the chocolate delicious, I love that by choosing COCO Chocolatiers I can feel confident that I am supporting an ethically sourced product while at the same time supporting a global network of artists. COCO Chocolatiers is a shining example of a brand that values style and substance equally and exells on both fronts.
